    Molly53's Note:

    This Fideo Soup With Chicken, made with a recipe from America's Restaurant in Harlingen, can be served as a soup or stew depending on the amount of broth used. America Rangel uses one or two chicken pieces per serving, and serves this with warm corn tortillas and refried beans. Courtesy of Eagle News Services via our local newspaper.

    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules, to taste
    • salt
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    • 1 white onion, chopped
    • 1 large bell pepper, seeded and chopped

    • cilantro (optional) or jalapeno, for seasoning and color, to garnish (optional)

      This was a simple, delicious, fulfilling meal. I added a tbsp of Knorr Chicken Stock for taste. The cilantro on top made it ever better. Great recipe.
