Spicy Cheese Ramen

Spicy, cheesy, creamy ramen? Heck yeah! This dish combines the rich, creamy texture of milk, the fiery kick of gochujang, and the comforting taste of American cheese. If American cheese sounds weird, it's actually AMAZING on ramen. Here's why.

Begin by following the instructions on the MMG Chicken Ramen packet. Boil a pot of water, then add the ramen noodles. However, here's where you'll start diverging from the usual preparation.

Instead of using water, substitute it with 1¾ cups of milk. The milk melds perfectly with the flavors of the MMG Chicken Ramen, creating a velvety base that complements the spiciness to come.

As the noodles cook in the milk, add the MMG soup base and seasoning oil. This mix of delectable spices and seasonings will infuse your broth with authentic ramen flavor, elevating it to new heights.

Now, it's time to kick up the heat. Stir in 2 tablespoons of gochujang, a Korean red chili paste that brings a fiery, spicy kick to your ramen. Adjust the amount to your desired level of spiciness.

Once the ramen is perfectly cooked and the broth has reached your desired spiciness, it's time for the magic touch. Top your ramen with a single slice of American cheese. The cheese will melt into the broth, creating an incredibly rich and creamy texture. Stir the cheese until it's fully integrated into the broth. Transfer to a bowl and top with green onions before digging in!
