Spicy Ramen Noodle Soup

Spicy Ramen Noodle Soup

If you weren't living off of Top Ramen at some point in college, then you weren't doing it right. Although your co-ed years may be far behind you, instant ramen doesn't have to be. However, "grown up" ramen should not be cooked in your dorm room on a hot plate and can incorporate more ingredients than just hot water and a seasoning packet - which btw is HIGH in sodium & what gives instant ramen its bad wrap! This Spicy Ramen Noodle Soup recipe is just as simple, but twice as good as the ramen of your college days.IMG_4934Ingredients:- 1 packet of instant ramen noodles- 1/4 cup diced yellow onion- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro- 1/2 packet of ramen seasoning packet (included in store bought ramen - I used Beef flavor)- 1/2 tsp. chili powder- 1/4 tsp. garlic powderPrep time: 5 mins - Cook time: 5 mins - Total time: 10 mins.Directions:1.
