Easy Spicy Chicken Ramen

If you were anything like me as a kid, teenager or college student, you could have probably lived off ramen with no problem. I had a very specific process when I made my ramen.

A few things may have changed over the years as far as my pallet goes, but I will never be one to turn down some flavorful noodles! This Easy Spicy Chicken Ramen is flavorful, has a little heat and is loaded with fresh and delicious ingredients. The best news is that is only takes about 15 minutes to prepare!

This recipe for The Best Chicken Quesadillas takes less than 30 minutes to make 4 large quesadillas, and they have a (not so) secret ingredient that really takes them to the next level – the jalapeño mayo.
