Spicy Fideo and Black Bean Pie

Spicy Fideos with Ground Beef and Black Beans
recipe from What Geeks Eat

1 pack age of fideos
1 pound ground beef
1 onion diced
¼ cup Penzeys spicy taco seasoning
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup water
1 jar canned tomato puree
1 can black beans drained
8 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded

Brown the ground beef in the skillet. Drain it if necessary. Add the onion and let it cook for a few minutes. Add the fideos and stir to combine. Add the seasonings, water and tomatoes and stir to mix it up. Let this bubble and cook for 10 minutes. The liquid should be mostly absorbed by the fideos. Add the black beans. Preheat the oven to broil. Top the fideos with the cheese and stick the pan under the broiler to melt and brown the cheese. Serve with a salad alongside.

    I know that fideos are similar to capellini. What exactly do I need to buy as "fideos" for this recipe? Can I sub capellini (and if so, do I add it dry and broken up or cook it first)? The recipe looks delish, can't wait to give it a try!
