Here is a quick and easy recipe for the sopa my grandma used to make for me. It’s a Mexican pasta dish spiced with cumin and it’s very, very delicious. It also happens to be extremely inexpensive, I included a photo of the receipt so that you’d believe the whole thing only cost about a dollar to make.

Thanks to my Mom for donating this recipe.


  • 1 package Mexican fideo
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 3 cups veggie broth (I used one bullion cube dissolved in three cups water)


Step 1

In a medium pan, saute the onions and fideo noodles over medium-low heat until the noodles become a very light brown (1-2 minutes).

Step 2

Add broth, cumin, tomatoes, and tomato sauce and stir well.

Step 3

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes,or until noodles have softened and there's a thicker consistency. Enjoy!
