I have been cooking lots of Mexican food recently. This is always a family favorite. Think of it as Mexican spaghetti.
I inadvertently deleted the first couple photos so we will just have to pick up here. Saute 1 diced onion in a few tablespoons of oil. Add 5 diced garlic cloves. Sprinkle it with salt and pepper, 2 tablespoons of cumin and add 1 tsp. of oregano.
Add 1 pound of ground meat and cook until it is browned.
In another pot, cook fideo noodles in a couple tablespoons of oil. I can now buy fideo noodles in my grocery store but if you can't find them, break up one pound of spaghetti noodles. Cook them until they start to brown.
Add 4 cups of beef stock.
Add 2 bay leaves.
Add 1- 28 0z. can of tomato sauce.
Add the onion and beef mixture.
Stir it thoroughly.
Cover and let it simmer for about 8 minutes. Test it to make sure the noodles are cooked through.
It will thicken.
Stir in some diced cilantro.
Sprinkle it with some crumbled Queso Fresco cheese. I also sprinkled on some grated Cotija cheese too.
