Sopa de Fideos {Recipe}

The soup cravings have started, even though we are not quite into the full swing of fall yet.  What's on the menu right now?  Sopa de Fideos.  Yum.  Yum.

I was first intrigued by a video I saw on YouTube, then I did a little research, searching online and flipping through my Mexican cookbooks to see what I wanted to do and the flavors I was seeking.  So the recipe below is just that.  A combination of what I've read and what I like.

{Sopa de Fideos}
8 Roma tomatoes, seeded and halved
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 large jalapeño, seeded and halved
1/2 onion, sliced
olive oil
7 oz. fideos
48 oz. low-sodium chicken broth

  1. In a 400 degree (F) oven, roast tomatoes, garlic, onion, and jalapeños.  Be sure to place the skin side down on the baking sheet and to drizzle vegetables with olive oil.  Roast for 20 minutes or until skin begins to char.
  2. Heat olive oil in a heavy pot.  Add fideos and sauté until the fideos begin to brown slightly.  This process with help the noodles keep their texture throughout the cooking process.
  3. Blend roasted vegetables with a little of the chicken broth until you reach a smooth consistency.
  4. Add the remaining chicken broth into the pot with the fideos.
  5. Add the blended roasted vegetable mixture into the pot.  Stir well.
  6. Bring to a boil.  Then cook until noodles are done.
  7. Add freshly chopped cilantro at the end.

...and the lovely bowl was created by my painter/potter aunt, Cynthia B. Harrell of Enthusiasm Pottery.  Somehow this bowl makes the soup taste even better.  :-)

Buen Provecho,

I may be linked up to the following parties:


  1. Your aunt's bowl is beautiful! I am sure food tastes more authentic in there and the pottery will make the heat of the soup lasts longer.

    I eat sopa de fideos at least once a week but as always, ours is so different from the Mexican recipes! Also, I prefer very thin fideos so I buy the smallest size. Oh but you can cook any soup with them, they are a great addition to healthy food (as, they are made of flour so you don't need to eat bread after this dish to complement your meal).

    1. I'd love to know of the Spanish version of this dish. You must provide a recipe. Now I'm curious. :-)

  2. Oh yum! I am going to pin this to Pinterest (giving you full credit!) so that I don't lose it. I can tell we would love this. Yay for fall and fall cooking.

  3. That sounds so good Libby! I'm going to make sure to make this soon. I'm so glad Fall is coming. I don't mind being in the kitchen when the temps are just right. :)

  4. Libby! You are making me hungry. Again!
