Recipe by Dixie from Kansas
I took a mexican cooking class and this is one of the recipes he taught us. We have made it often over the past several years. It is one of our favorite dishes. Fideo can be found in the mexican section. It is an inexpensive short thin pasta. I double this recipe for us because we love it so much.
