My fiance's mother always made her Fideo this way, and we just improved on it. It's really delicious and we always eat it with pieces of tortilla. Just some things to keep in mind: The spices are just guesstimated as we don't really measure things, so build up the flavors however you like them. We love the flavor of comino (cumin) so we add a LOT lol. We also enjoy more salt, so you can omit the salt from the meat seasoning if you're worried it's going to be too salty for your taste. Also, you can make this as soupy as you like. The amount I put makes it just a little soupy. It's also kinda easy to overcook the noodles, so be careful. Oh and in the picture, you can see beans. This is because we get a can of Charro beans on the side, and add some in as we serve ourselves. If you want, you can add the can to the dish itself, but I recommend draining it first.
