Sopa Aguada de Fideo is a soupier version of Sopa de Pasta. It can be served as a side dish, but is hearty enough to be served as a main dish as well.
Sopa de Fideo
(yields 8 cups of soup)
- 3 roma tomatoes
- 1/2 medium onion
- 6 to 8 oz. fideo (vermicelli)

Puree the tomatoes and onion in a blender with 2 cups of water; set aside.
Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a 2-quart saucepan. Add the fideo and chile de arbol.
Saute over medium-high heat until the noodles turn a deep golden brown.
