Submitted by: IRMA1954

Introduction

My earliest recollection of this soup is when I was around five years old. Mom would make this soup for us children. She would say," Easy to make and easy to eat", and very good.

Ingredients

    8-10 chicken drumsticks
    1 7oz. package El Mexicano Fideo cambray
    1/2c. chopped onion
    2 tbs.+1tsp minced gralic
    4Tbs.Olive oil or your favorite
    4c. chicken broth
    1/2 tsp. ground cumin
    1tsp. black pepper
    10c. water
    2 med. tomatoes pureed
    1 8oz. can tomato sauce
    salt to taste


Directions

In a large dutch oven or stock pot, place olive oil to heat, wait until oil is hot enough to brown the fideo(vermicelli) stir continuosly, it browns very quickly.
When the fideo is golden brown drain and residual oil then add the chopped onion, garlic, pepper and cumin. Stir quickly then add tomato sauce, chicken broth, water and pureed tomatoes.
Now, rinse off your chicken you may use the breast or wings...whatever part of the chicken you prefer. I like drumsticks. For even less fat you may choose to remove the skin. I left the salt out for you add as needed according to your preference.
Simmer for approx. 30 mins. or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
This recipe will feed 8-10 people. ( I have lotza grandkids.)

Note: Sometimes I also add carrots and or potatoes to this soup mmmm good. Wonderful on a cold day.
You might even want add a bay leaf and remove it later or cilantro. Have fun with recipe! Enjoy!
