Here’s another fun TikTok trend! Have you seen ramen recipes all over TikTok? While I am not on TikTok nearly as much as my kids, I have seen some recipes trends that I had to try! Or that my kids encouraged me to try ๐Ÿ˜‰ And this Taco Ramen Recipe is just that. I swear, my kids could eat ramen every day if I let them! My daughter made ramen last week with the sauce from one of our favorite family recipes, Korean Beef, and it was so good! So next we decided we needed to switch up Taco Tuesday and make Taco Ramen.

Yep, you read that right, Taco Ramen.

So what exactly is Taco Ramen?

Well, we took our favorite ingredients from tacos and added it to ramen! Ground beef, onions, peppers, and we made an incredible creamy cheese sauce to mix in that took our new ramen recipe to the next level.

Taco Ramen Key Ingredients

  • Ramen – of course. You can discard the seasoning packet that comes with it.
  • Lean ground beef
  • Onion
  • Mini sweet peppers – you can substitute bell peppers if you would like.
  • Jalapeno – We leave the seeds in because we like a little heat, but you can remove them if desired.
  • Chicken Broth – I used low sodium.
  • Seasonings – I used DUST by VooDoo Chef and red pepper flakes.
  • Cilantro – for garnish if desired.

How Do You Make Taco Ramen

It’s actually pretty easy! First you will cook the diced veggies until they start to get soft, about 3-4 minutes. Once the onions and peppers are tender, you will add in the ground beef and cook until all the pink is gone. Then you will add in the seasonings, chicken broth and the ramen noodles. While the noodles cook you will make the delicious ooey-gooey cheese sauce. To make the cheese sauce you simply melt the butter, add in the flour, then the Florida milk, then the cheese. Stir until thicken! Once the ramen noodles are cooked, you will add the cheese sauce to the skillet with the beef and ramen, stir, and enjoy! My daughter ate her Taco Ramen with chopsticks, so did my husband actually!  I am not that skilled, but I think it’s just as good with a fork ๐Ÿ™‚

My kids like it pretty spicy, so they both added a few dashes of hot sauce to theirs, but the flavor is great without it.
