Hearty & satisfying Mexican chicken noodle soup!
Sopa de fideo is Mexican noodle soup. In Spanish, “sopa de fideo” means “noodle soup.” Because this recipe includes chicken, it is technically “sopa de pollo con fideos,” or “chicken noodle soup.” :)
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this easy Mexican noodle soup.
Blend tomatoes and onions with water to make a simple broth.
Briefly toast the noodles in a bit of oil until light golden.
Add the tomato broth, water and remaining broth.
Add the chicken, bring to a simmer, then cook until tender. Add the jalapeno 10 min before the cooking time is finished.
With two forks, shred the cooked chicken breasts right in the pot.
Serve with lime wedges and a big stack of warm tortillas. This sopa de fideo soup is so cozy!
