Microwave Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Ramen is a fun, spicy, ramen you can make in five minutes with all the flamin’ cheesy Cheetos flavor you love.

Have you ever looked at a bag of Cheetos and thought that they might make a delicious flavor of ramen? No? Well, we have, because we’re the kind of people who ask the big questions in life, such as: “Wouldn’t Flamin’ Hot Cheetos make a delicious instant ramen flavor?” And that’s why we get paid the big bucks.

MICROWAVE FLAMIN’ HOT CHEETOS RAMEN

So there you are, with only one packet of ramen and a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and a fierce hunger that you can’t contain. What you should do in these situations is break open the Cheetos, mix them with your ramen, and enjoy a delicious dinner the likes of which your tastebuds have never experienced before. Flamin’ Hot Cheeto Ramen has a shockingly complex and gourmet flavor that will most likely catch you off guard, and you may never return to eating either Cheetos or ramen on their own ever again, but that’s a risk you’re just going to have to take.

VARIATIONS ON MICROWAVE FLAMIN’ HOT CHEETOS RAMEN

You may think that we’ve pushed the absolute limits of flavor by adding Flamin’ Hot Cheetos to ramen and that there’s nothing more you can do to this recipe to make it more complex. You are wrong! We, the mad geniuses of dorm food, have come up with some more fun variations for you to try.

  • Melted cheddar cheese
  • Finely chopped onions
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Hot sauce
  • Chopped hot peppers

WHAT TO SERVE WITH MICROWAVE FLAMIN’ HOT CHEETOS RAMEN

If you have leftover Cheetos when you’re done making your ramen, just pour some out onto a plate next to your noodles and chow down. You can also slice up some fresh veggies, like carrots and celery, and plate them up to give your ramen dinner a little more of a crunch.

SAVE SOME FOR LATER

You can take your leftover Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Ramen and put it into a sealable container or a bag, and chuck it in the fridge for up to a week. To reheat it, just put your ramen in the microwave for about 1 minute, check to see how warm it is, and then add more heat as needed.

COST FACTOR

$: Ramen and Cheetos are some of the most inexpensive ingredients you could possibly imagine, making it ideal for those of us whose wallets are, frankly, pretty sad. Apart from those two key pieces, you just need water and the seasoning packet that comes with the ramen, and you’re good to go. Basically, you can get everything you need for half the price of going out and finding a ready-made bowl of noodles.

MICROWAVE TABLE

  • 1,000 watts or higher: Higher wattage, lower cook time. Our microwave is about 1,250 watts, but if you have one with about 1,000 watts you will want to microwave the ramen for 3:35 minutes.
  • 700 watts: Microwaves under about 900 don’t heat things evenly or consistently, so don’t go anywhere while you’re cooking. Cook your ramen for about 5:10 minutes.
