Sopa Seca de Fideo with Chorizo & Queso Fresco

One-pot pasta meals are trendy for being quick-cooking with easy-cleanup, but they’re not a new thing! The Mexican people have been cooking pasta this way for a very long time."Sopa Seca" means "dried soup" because the pasta is cooked in the soupy sauce until it all of it has been absorbed. The trick here is to stir often so it doesn't stick to pot. This recipe is sort of like a pasta Bolognese but with a nice kick of spice, and in case you’re curious… fideo is the Spanish word for “noodle”. This is the perfect stick-to-your-ribs meal that everyone in the family will enjoy. Buen Provecho, y'all!
