Fideo seco is an all-time favorite of families all over México. A dish you can find in every household—it’s simple, yet so full of comfort and good memories.
Best described as Mexican-style pasta, Fideo seco is what you can expect when you visit your mom or grandma unannounced. Even though it can be whipped up in no time, there’s so much flavor and love. Every bite takes you home—no matter where you are. For me, that’s Tijuana, sitting in my grandma’s kitchen watching her stir the fideo until it was perfectly cooked. She would then watch like a hawk until I finished everything on my plate.
Toasted fideo is cooked in a tomato and chile broth until perfectly soft and infused. Finish with a drizzle on the creamy cashew chipotle crema and maybe some avocado slices and fresh cilantro.
