Sopa de Fideo

Sopita or sopa is what I believe to be a true Mexican comfort food.  Introduced to babies as one of their first soups, sopita is a chicken broth based soup with small pastas or fideo.  Small pastas come in many shapes such as little stars, alphabets, small shells, fideo, elbows or melon seeds.  The soup is infused with tomatoes, garlic, onion and cilantro.  Every household has their version, their own twist, their “sopa style.”  I prefer my mom’s version as she would say “caldudito” soupy, brothy.

 

I turn to this sopa when my girls are feeling down, when the weather is chilly or if I crave the company of my mom.  Enjoy! Sweet Life!
