This might be a good way to turn a regular ramen pack into a “picante” version. I suspect taco seasoning is mainly chili powder and cayenne pepper, with maybe some cumin. I also figure you could use a bullion cube here if you follow the re-hydration instructions.

- 1 package chicken flavored ramen - I like to use the ones in the Styrofoam cups for convenience and veggies!
- Taco seasoning in a packet - you will NOT be using all of it
- 1-14 ounce can of chicken broth - you can use water, but I like the added flavor
I absolutely love Mexican soups. I, however, cannot afford to buy the fresh ingredients needed to make them, so I often miss the flavor and spiciness. One day, the product of a little experimentation came about, and I now have an almost daily lunch option that satisfies my taste buds. 1. Open a can of chicken broth, pour in saucepan with enough taco seasoning to taste (I like mine spicy and use about a tablespoon) and stir to dissolve. 2. Heat to boiling, stirring so spices distribute evenly throughout broth. 3. Either add noodles and seasoning packet to saucepan and cook until tender or add water to Styrofoam cup and let stand three minutes. Then eat up! I like to have a tortilla to tear off and grab some noodle with. It makes it a bit more filling and almost authentic.
