Top Ramen to the HNL!

Who can resist a good bowl of Ramen Noodle? Our kids love it and since Tami and I love spicy food we like to experiment with it from time to time as well.

Last night, we took Top Ramen to the HNL! What is HNL, you ask? HNL stands for "hole 'notha level" - just ask Mad TV what it's all about. So, we took ramen noodle the next level. And it was delicious. It is easy to turn this simple noodle dish into something extravagant and somewhat healthy for you. But beware...it is not for the faint of heart or for the soft of stomach. I guess you could tone down the spice if you wanted, but what fun would that be?

What you'll need:

2 packets Top Ramen - Chicken Flavor
1 can chicken
1 cup sliced bell pepper
1/4 cup sliced onion
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
5 slices of jarred jalepeno
4 tobasco peppers (Trappey's brand Peppers is what we had)
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
Sriracha Hot Chili Sause (the clear bottle full of red sauce with the rooster on it that you see in all the asian restaurants).
Pepto Bismol (for afterward)

Saute veggies until tender crisp then add hot peppers and cook down until everything has slightly browned - perhaps 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the Top Ramen as directed and add chicken after the seasoning packet. Cook in a well ventilated area as the pepper spices will make you cough! It was quite hilarious actually. After it has all cooked, combine everything in a bowl and top with Red Chili sauce to taste. Adding some Soy sauce may help too, who knows? Enjoy! Spice it up as you like it or tone it down if you are not ready for the HNL!

We are a family of four from Olympia, WA living on our sailboat. Currently in Banderas Bay, Mexico waiting out hurricane season. Who knows where we will end up? We are taking an enormous risk, both physically and financially. [...]
Extra: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain
