There are many recipes for sopa de fideo. Here's my take, made with shredded chicken and chipotle. It's the perfect antidote for your winter blues!

Chicken noodle soup just screams "comfort food," doesn't it? Well, in Mexico, sopa de fideo is one of our go-to comfort foods. It's a very simple soup to make, but full of flavor and aroma. It's one of those heart- and soul-warming dishes that instantly reminds me of home. For this recipe I added a bit of cumin and canned chipotle to give the soup some extra flavor.

On a cold winter day, it doesn't get much better than this!
