Sopa de Fideo (Mexican Noodle Soup)

Sopa de fideo is one of my favorite soups ever.

It is a Mexican noodle soup.

It’s amazingly easy and my kids love it!

They are obsessed with noodles.

Very rarely I would give them ramen noodles but I would always feel so guilty because I know they’re not very healthy.

However now I don’t feel that guilt when I make them this sopa de fido.

Sopa de Fideo is a yummy Mexican noodle soup. This soup is perfect for lunch or as a light dinner. It's also makes a cheap meal and is ready in 30 minutes!

For this recipe I used a carton of chicken broth but if you wanted to you could easily use your own homemade broth.

With homemade broth it also easier to control the sodium content.

But you could also just buy some low sodium chicken broth.

Whatever works for you.

This soup is very simple and easily adaptable.

I admit that everything does tastes better when you use homemade broth.

I used the store bought one because it’s easy and I didn’t have any homemade broth in the fridge.

It is still super yummy though.

If you like chicken noodle soup and love Mexican food then I urge you to try sopa de fideo.

It doesn’t have any chicken in it but you could add some if you wanted.

I personally don’t think it needs it.

It’s cheaper not to add it unless you have some leftover chicken in the fridge that you want to use up.

Plus I just prefer to keep this soup light but I love piling on the garnishes.

Whenever I’m eating a caldo or a Mexican soup I always have to eat it with toasted corn tortillas.

And don’t forget the lime!

No Mexican caldo is complete without lime.

I was talking to a friend of mine today on our way back from church and she told me she likes to put all kinds of veggies in hers.

I think I will have to try that next time.

However you make it Sopa de fideo is a must try.

It is something the whole family will love.

What I love about it is that it’s cheap!

I’m always looking for tasty affordable meals I can feed my family.

I hope you enjoy it as well!

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope to see you back soon!
