I love fideos and was happy to see this recipe here. I haven't had any since I was back in NM and my best friend's mom made them for me:) If you aren't sure what they are--if you've ever made Rice-a-Roni, they are the non rice part that you brown in the pan. If you have a Mexican or International Foods aisle in your grocery store you may be able to find actual packages of fideos noodles--they have them here in NC at some of the WalMarts on the Latin/Mexican food aisle. Thanks for this recipe--I'll be trying it soon.
