Fideo Seco Steps
The first thing we need to do is make the salsa.
Blend tomato sauce, one garlic clove and a quarter of an onion until well blended.
Then set aside the salsa.
Now it’s time to toast the fideo.
This is the kind I use.
However many people use angel hair pasta, shells or even elbow pasta.
Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Once the oil is hot add the fideo.
This step will take about 5-7 minutes.
Make sure to constantly stir to prevent the fideo from burning.
The fideo after 5-7 minutes should look like the photo below.
Now that the fideo is nicely toasted we can add the blended tomato sauce.
Let the sauce cook for a minute.
Then add 1 1/2 cups of water, 1 tsp of knorr chicken flavor bouillon and 1/2 tsp of salt.
Stir and taste. This is your opportunity to add more seasonings if you like.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer covered for about 12 to 15 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Once done it should look like the photo below.
It is now ready to be served!
