SOPA DE FIDEOS WITH POTATOES RECIPE

Some people like to add potatoes to the Sopa de fideos. You can cut potatoes into little squares and cook them along with the chicken and then just add it with chicken broth. Some other people like to sauté the potatoes with onion and when the potatoes are halfway cooked add the fideo and saute along until they are golden brown and finally add the chicken broth and let all cook together.

HOW TO MAKE SALSA DE TOMATE FOR SOPA DE FIDEO CON POLLO

Tomato sauce for fideos soup is very easy to make. Set 3 tomatoes cut in pieces in the blender along with 1 garlic clove, 1/4 of an onion and 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and a cup of water. Blend all together until liquify. I will recommend cooking the tomatoes sauce in a little olive oil before adding it to the video soup. It really gives a delicious taste but you can always just add the raw sauce to the fideos and it will cook along with the video.
