Introduction: Fideo the Easy Way
Here is my way of making a tasty and fairly cheap meal of Tex-Mex fideo. This is the crowd pleasing, keep the stuff on hand because you never know who will show up kind of meal.
Step 1: Gather the Needed Stuff
For this recipe i used the following:
2-poblano peppers, you could use green bell peppers but its a totally different taste
2- potatoes, any will do
1-box of fideo noodles
1- can of diced tomatoes
2 pounds of hamburger
and of course fideo ole from Bolners spices. Here is there website (https://www.fiestaspices.com/index.asp) if you cant find them at your local grocery store
Step 2: Brown the Noodles
This is a very important step, I don't know why but it adds to the over all flavor of the soup. I just dump the noodles in a pan without any oil and let them brown on med heat while I cut everything else up. It doesn't take long and you just want them a darker shade of brown then what they look like out of the box. Be careful to not burn them.
Step 3: Start Browning the Hamburger Meat.
I normally brown the hamburger at a med high heat. Just make sure its all fully cooked
Step 4: Chop Up All the Vegetables
I chop up everything into dice sized or smaller pieces while i am waiting on the hamburger and noodles to brown.
Step 5: Put It All Together
Once the hamburger is browned add all of the chopped vegetables to it and stir them in.
Step 6: The Most Important Part
Eat it after the noodles are cooked and the vegetables are soft. Enjoy
