Two years ago we went to Mexico with some friends and the resort’s sushi restaurant had a spicy ramen dish that I was obsessed with on the trip. I think I had it 3 times in our 5 day stay while we were there. Ever since then, I have constantly looked for spicy ramen dishes at restaurants.
Spicy carbs are the way to my heart!
I found a place in Kansas City, Prime Sushi, that has an amazing spicy ramen! Their sushi was delicious and fresh too. If you’re local, go check it out!
However, a 30 minute drive isn’t always feasible for me, so when I ran across these noodles at Costco, I knew I had to try to make my own dish! (Some Targets have these noodles as well!)
I then found some sauces in the ethnic food aisle at the grocery store that I am obsessed with now. They smell amazing and I plan on using them for other stuff too. Pastas, grilled chicken or steak, scrambled eggs…I love SPICY!!
I bought these sauces before I had a recipe in mind, so I decided to make up mine own recipe with these and luckily it turned out awesome! You can definitely make this less spicy by cutting the spicy sauces and seasonings in half. This ramen is hot but not overwhelming. I actually added a little more heat to mine after I cooked it!!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Total Time: 35 Minutes
- 10 oz ramen noodles (you can sub the packaged ramen and just throw away the seasoning packet)
- 1 Quart Reduced Sodium Chicken Broth
- 2 Cups Water
- 12 oz Shredded Chicken (rotisserie chicken would work)
- 3/4 Cup Chopped Onion
- 2 Cups Spinach (I tore the leaves in half)
- 1 tsp Ground Pepper
- 2 Tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 2 Tbsp Sriracha Hot Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
- 2 Tbsp Chili Oil
- 2 Tbsp Chili Garlic Sauce
- 1 Medium Diced Jalapeño Without Seeds
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Minced Cilantro
- Sliced Jalapeño
- Minced Cilantro
- Chili Sauce, Chili Oil and Sriracha
In a pot combine all of the ingredients except for the noodles. Bring to a boil and then turn it down to a slow boil on medium heat for 10 minutes. In a separate pot, add 3 quarts of water and bring to a boil. Add your noodles and boil for 5-6 minutes. Then strain the noodles. The package says 4 minutes but I like my noodles a little softer. If you want a little more al dente, go for 4 minutes.
To Serve: Add a serving of noodles to your bowls and then add the broth over it. Top with any additional toppings. I added scallions, jalapeños, cilantro and more chili oil! Give it a good stir and let the noodles soak for a few minutes in the broth to soak up the flavors!
Brothy, spicy goodness!!
Let me know if you try it!! Happy slurping 🙂
