We invented this burrito casserole, and so many people have asked us for the recipe that we decided to write it up for everyone! It’s sort of like a ‘Mexican lasagna’ (or ‘lasagne’, if you prefer) We like to serve it with a side of salad and some cornbread!
What could be better than Sopa Seca de Fideo? Why, easy, delicious, gluten-free and vegan Sopa Seca de Fideo, of course! In case you’re wondering just what the heck this dish is, it’s called many things in English, including “Mexican Spaghetti”, “Mexican Angel Hair”, “Mexican Pasta” and, quaintly, “Mexican Dry Noodle Soup”. These are all actually misnomers, if you want to get technical, because Sopa Seca de Fideo, if made authentically, is made with fideo noodles. Basically it’s thin vermicelli-type noodles cooked in a savory broth, and served as a side dish, although you can also use it as a main dish topped with tofu or vegan chicken (traditional Sopa Seca is made with chicken).
If there is one thing that most of us can agree upon univerally, it’s that it is hot! Temperatures like this make us all seek out some fun, frozen treats to cool us down. Paletas, or, Mexican popsicles, are wildly popular in Mexico.
