COST FACTOR

$: All you need are Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and ramen, which means that you don’t need to spend a ton of money. Well, honestly, you don’t have to spend practically any money, that’s the beauty of this recipe.

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 2:25 minutes, add the rest of the ingredients and cook for another 2:25 minutes.
  • 700 watts: Microwaves under about 900 don’t heat things evenly or consistently, so don’t go anywhere while you’re cooking. Cook the ramen for 3:25 minutes, follow the next few steps, then microwave again for a final 3:25 minutes.
