Sopa de Pollo con Fideos or Chicken Noodle Soup is a Puerto Rican recipe that is common throughout the world but has its roots in Spanish cuisine. It is the Sofrito that gives all Puerto Rican food its distinct flavor and this dish is no rival. Be sure to use bone-in meat as it adds a rich flavor to the broth.

What are Fideos?

Fideos are very thin pasta noodles also known as vermicelli noodles. If you can’t find them, you can also use angel hair pasta, but it’s not as thin as vermicelli or fideo.

Why use Sofrito?

Sofrito is the basic building block of all Puerto Rican cuisine and can be added to beans, rice, soups, stews, you name it. It typically consists of aromatic ingredients cut into small pieces and sautéed or braised in cooking oil.
