n.— «Mention fideo and you’ll likely get a happy sigh about the “yellow box”—and the mother, grandmother, aunt or uncle who makes this lesser-known staple best. Yet fideo is essentially the Spanish word for vermicelli, a pasta. So how did it find its way into the Tex-Mex oeuvre?» —“Tex-Mex Pasta: A noodle called fideo is recalled as comfort food” by Lynn Brezosky Winston-Salem Journal (N.C.) Apr. 6, 2005.
