Not your traditional soup: the Mexican name of this recipe literally translates as "dry soup" so there is no liquid. Fideo noodles are fried, then stirred into a quick tomato sauce and simmered until noodles absorb it. Serve with grated aged cheese.

  • Pour tomato mixture carefully into a blender; add water. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Pour back into the skillet; add bouillon and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add the fried noodles. Cook until the noodles are tender and have absorbed most of the tomato sauce, about 15 minutes more.
