READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mexi-Rosie

A "dry" fideo (vermicelli) soup. Vermicelli noodles, along with red rice, are everyday fare on Mexican tables.

I had always wanted to cook a sopa seca, and this was a good choice. We love the combination of poblanos and cream. We added 2 cups chopped chicken to make it a one-dish meal. We snapped a photo, but this homestyle dish is pretty plain-looking -- my husband said "looks like slop." But it was delicious! We'll make this again -- thanks Mexi-Rosie!
