Your sopa de fideo ( Mexican Soup Recipe) will thicken as it sets. If you want to reheat the leftovers you will need to add a little more broth and re-season to serve again.
We like to use fire roasted tomatoes. We used the ones in a can as this time of the year, fresh tomatoes are not in season.
If tomatoes are in season, feel free to fire roast your own roma tomatoes, peel and add to the soup base.
Fresh Cilantro (coriander) really makes this recipe delicious. However, we know that some individuals have an aversion to cilantro. You can exchange with a teaspoon of dried oregano.
