11 Ways People Enjoy Their Sopa De Fideo

Although I’m only familiar with eating sopa de fideo con limón and Tapatio, there are so many other ingredients people like to add to the mix. After a conversation with friends about the ways we prefer to eat sopa de fideo, I got lots of tips on ways to switch things up. Here are some of the different ways people enjo their sopa de fideo:

One ingredient some people like to add to their sopa de fideo is banana. Yes, banana.


This is the first time I’ve heard of it and I’m lowkey curious to find out what it tastes like. Although you might think that bananas and sopa de fideo do not mix well, people who grew up eating it this way say that the tomato base actually compliments the sweetness of the banana.

Another sweet ingredient that is sometimes mixed in with sopa de fideo is corn.

The elotero should consider selling this for the winter. Just like the spice of powdered chile and the saltiness of mayonnaise compliments the sweetness of corn (as an elotero would prepare it), the corn in this sopa must also compliment the saltiness of the broth.

As a spicy alternative, some people like to add pickled jalapeños and carrots straight from the can.


If you’re sick, this bowl of soup will sure clear up any sort of congestion.

Others prefer to add fresh slices of nopales into their sopa de fideo.

All that’s missing is a couple of warm tortillas on the side. ?

To add an extra bit of flavor, there are people who like to add condiments into their sopa, such as ketchup.

Calling all ketchup lovers. I’d guess this tastes somewhat similar to a Mexican coctel de camaron, except warm and with noodles instead of seafood.

But if you’re not a fan of ketchup, you can add a couple scoops of crema instead.

The best part about this creamy sopa de fideo combo is that you’re not limited to just one type of crema. You can go with crema Salvadoreña, crema Mexicana, or any other based on your preference.

If you need some protein, you can go with a combo of sopa de fideo and hard boiled eggs.


Other people also like to add in either scrambled eggs, over-easy eggs or poached eggs.

If you love cheese, you can add queso cotija, queso fresco or queso panela for that extra flavor.


Now I’m getting hungry.

Some people also enjoy adding picadillo to their sopa de fideo.


The picadillo you see in the picture above has a mix of chopped potatoes and ground beef.

But if you don’t eat meat, you can go with frijoles.


You can go with either black beans or pinto beans are pictured above.

And if you love avocado, here’s how you can prepare your sopa de fideo:

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”

CDC Warns Of Listeria Outbreak Linked To ‘Hispanic-Style’ Cheeses


CDC Warns Of Listeria Outbreak Linked To ‘Hispanic-Style’ Cheeses

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning everyone against “Hispanic-style” cheeses linked to a listeria outbreak. The latest food outbreak is attacking one of the most sacred things in our diets and people have a lot of opinions.

Listeria has been detected in “Hispanic-style” cheeses, according to the CDC.

According to a warning from the CDC, listeria has been detected in what they are calling “Hispanic-style” cheeses. This means that people should avoid queso fresco and queso blanco. The source of the outbreak is being tracked and there is some understanding about where the outbreak is coming from.

The CDC recommends that people avoid these cheeses right now and to make sure that the cheeses they buy are made from “pasteurized milk.” Listeria is a serious illness for the elderly, people who are immunocompromised, and pregnant people.

The CDC reports that Connecticut officials have found Listeria in some El Abuelito queso fresco. The cheese was purchased from a supermarket in the area where a patient purchased “Hispanic-style” cheese. The outbreak seems to be concentrated in the Northeastern United States and has impacted four states.

Seven people have been hospitalized because of the Listeria outbreak.

The announcement is a very personal attack for a lot of people. Queso fresco and queso blanco are very important for a lot of dishes in our cuisine and to go without, during Lent and Covid, is asking a lot of us.

People are kind of irked that the CDC didn’t use a different phrase to talk about the cheese.

We get that technically the cheese is in Spanish and that it is more commonly used in Latino food. However, the cheeses have names that can be used. Sure, there was no idea of the brand but would it really be that hard to say “queso fresco and queso blanco”?

At least it would have prevented other people from having to answer other people’s questions.

It’s called efficiency. Some news outlets were sharing images of yellow queso dip because it is also technically a “Hispanic-style” cheese but it not the cheese in question.
