Where do I find Mexican Q&Q Fideo?

Being from Texas originally I miss my Q&Q Fideo so I try to pick up a couple of boxes on each trip home. Is there anyone that knows of a grocery store in northern MA that carries the yellow & red box? I would even travel a distance if I knew it was available.

  1. Never heard of it, but after some Google'ing it sounds interesting. Is it like one of the ingredients in Rice-A-Roni? I'd love to know how you use it in your favorite dishes if you could share the info with us.

    If no one has any local leads for you, it looks like Amazon has it sometimes. You can be notified when it becomes available again.

      Thanks Dave for the reply. I use fideo in one dish that is a beef dish my late MIL taught me. i always serve with corn and flour tortillas. A case of 48 is only $15 from OB Macaroni but 48 is alot of fideo.
      1 box of fideo
      1 lb ground beef
      1/2 small can tomatoe sauce
      Salt, pepper, garlic powder & comino to taste
      Brown the meat & set aside
      Brown the fideo in touch of oil and add browned meat afterwards
      Cover with water after adding spices & sauce and cook 15-20 mins
      i am going to try some fideo that I found in Lawrence and will let you know how it compares.

    2. Casinogalb2, there is an Italian product that looks like a ditto to this sold in J. Pace in Saugus, MA. I know it's not your original but it's damn close, if the Lawrence version doesn't do the trick.

        Thanks pinehurst...I will try that too.

      2. Failing finding any prepared(toasted) Fideos, You can just buy Angel Hair nests or Capellini, break it in to small pieces, toss with a tiny bit of oil and toast on a sheet pan in the oven.
