Back in my college days, if I had to pick my 3 favorite late night foods, it would be ramen, pizza and mac n’ cheese. Yup. I feel pretty confident that I’m not the only one with these 3 rounding out their list because hello cheap, easy and delicious. And guess what, I still need these foods in my life from time to time.

But, this chili lime shrimp ramen recipe is for the grown-ups out there (even those pretending to be – heyy) that are in need of a ramen fix but want something that is considered acceptable for dinner, and actually eaten at dinner time, not at 2 a.m.

Without further ado, Chili Lime Shrimp Ramen to the rescue.

I’ve come across quite a few homemade ramen soup recipes, but never one that quite met my fancy. I love shrimp, and I love a little heat, so why not make the best of both worlds? Am I right?! My college self would be proud. And actually, my college self liked to cook. But, on a college budget, I kept things pretty simple. Now, my obsession with food has led me to experiment in ways I never dreamed of.

In college, I did a lot of cooking with my gal pal and roommate, Rachel (we called ourselves R^2 – yes, we’re super cool). We were kind of the like the “chefs” of our 5 girl college home. Whenever we had people over for the weekend, the two of us would usually be in the kitchen whipping up dinner to fill our bellies for what was to come that night or whipping up a feast of a brunch to recoup from last nights activities. And of course, we always had the staple 3 late-night foods stocked. But, how awesome would it have been to mow down on this Chili Lime Shrimp Ramen than the ramen from the bag with a few dehydrated teeny tiny shrimp?

I hope you all enjoy this adult version of ramen and take a trip down memory lane while slurping up this delicious soup. Or eating. I hate the sound of slurping. Makes me cringe just thinking about it. Other than things I don’t like, if you want to learn a little bit more about me, like things I do like, get the scoop here.
