Noodle soup is a traditional dish of Mexican cuisine. It’s super versatile; it can be served more soup-or stew-like. I prefer it more stew-like, with less broth and garnished with lots of cheese. Sometimes I like to play with recipes to create new versions, such as this variation with a little chile pepper and Mexican chorizo. My kids love it! The dried chiles and chorizo not only give it a spicy kick, but they also intensify the red color for beautiful presentation. If you’re tired of always preparing the same soup time and time again, try this recipe with even more Mexican flavor that will delight all who try it. MORE + LESS -

    Heat the vegetable oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat. Fry the chorizo until it’s completely cooked. Add the dried noodles, stirring constantly, until lightly golden brown. Carefully pour the chile pepper and tomato mix in a pot with the noodles; season with salt, to taste. When it begins to boil, reduce to low heat and cover. Let cook until all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and sprinkle with the shredded cheese.
