Chicken Taco Ramen

This recipe is the type I do when we have absolutely no money and I have just what’s in the cupboard, freezer or fridge. I used the meat from the thighs of the whole chicken I used yesterday and the super cheap packet of flavoured noodles again so it costs around 42p a serving. I’ve included the ingredients to make taco seasoning which you can make a small container full and then use it in other meals.

For the taco seasoning:

1 tbsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder 

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp salt 

Serves 4


1 packet noodles, discard flavour packet

1 beef stock cube 

1 tin chopped tomatoes 

100ml water

2 tbsp taco seasoning 

200g cooked chicken, shredded 

200g sweetcorn 

100g cheddar cheese, grated 

  1. Add the water, stock cube, taco seasoning, noodles and tomatoes to a large pan and bring it to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes, or until noodles are soft. Stir in chicken
  2. Microwave sweetcorn for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Serve with grated cheese on top.

Top tips:

You can use almost any cooked meat, it especially works well with leftover meat from a roast.
