    Did you know that ramen is mentioned more frequently on the Internet than grilled cheese, Cronuts, and sriracha combined? Ramen-mania has spurred the creation of crazy food hybrids like the ramen burger and ramen-crusted chicken wings; it was only a matter of time before these delicious noodles worked their way into a burrito. We’ve teamed up with our friends at Foodbeast to create our take on this epic mashup; watch the video to see how it’s done, including how to roll the perfect burrito.

    Inspired by PressTea


    For the ramen:
    1 package ramen noodles, such as Top Ramen
    2 tablespoons peanut oil
    1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
    2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

    For the ramenritto:
    3 burrito-size flour tortillas, warmed

    Optional toppings:
    Shredded cheddar cheese
    Shredded chicken
    Spam, diced
    Pico de gallo
    Corn, cut off the cob
    Fried egg
    Ranch dressing
    Refried beans

    Make the ramen: Boil 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan; once the water comes to a boil, break the ramen into 4 chunks and add the ramen noodles and half of the seasoning packet to the water; cook for two minutes. Drain.
    Add oil, garlic, and cilantro to a skillet set over high heat, and heat for about a minute, or until the garlic is sizzling. Add noodles and the other half of the seasoning packet. Cook for an additional minute until the noodles are warmed through.
    Assemble the ramenritto: Add 1/4 cup of noodles to a warmed tortilla, and fill it with your choice of toppings. Roll up the burrito. Repeat with remaining ingredients, and serve immediately.


    Yield: Serves 3
    Cook Time: 15 minutes

    Brandi Milloy: Right! So, break this up into four pieces, find the little packet of seasoning. We are going to put all the noodles into our boiling water and then amazing half of packet of oregano, keep the other half for later.
