A kind of Mexican stew with pasta. One of my favorites.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry vermicelli in pan with oil and set aside (don't overbrown as to not make pasta tough.).
  2. in a pot, cook meat in some oil until brown with salt and pepper.
  3. add all ingredients in with meat, stir and cover for 3-5 minutes for pasta to soften.
  4. then cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
  5. don't overcook and don't stir or the pasta will turn to mush.

This dish brought back a lot of good memories of my grandmother's cooking.
