This soupa tasted great! However, I changed the quantites quite a bit ... sorry Christina, but there is NO WAY it only serves 4-6 people! I only used 3 cups noodles, 26 oz. tomatoe sauce, 1 lb hamburg, 1/2 onion, 2 tb butter, 2 cups cheese, 2 cans of corn and 1 cup salsa. This served 12 people!! Plus leftovers! I'm going to re-enter this recipe (to get the nutrition right)...Check out Mexican Soupa 2
This is what we ate growing up. You may want to try to fry a jalepeno when you fry the noodles. It gives it a great flavor. Look in the mexican food section in your grocery store and try fideo noodles.
This soup has a great flavor, thanks to the salsa. The directions call for boiling water, but no mention of amount. I added one can of water for each can of tomato sauce. It seemed to be pretty flavorful that way, but there was not much broth, so perhaps I should have added more?
