Hip tips for making this Ramen Noodle Taco Bowls recipe:

  • Make our Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe for the most flavorful taco meat ever. It’s super easy to make, much healthier than buying the packets of taco seasoning at the grocery store, and you’ll love the way it tastes!
  • You could definitely change this recipe’s add-ins to accommodate what you have on hand or cater to your family’s taste preferences.
  • Ramen noodles are one of the key ingredients that make this recipe both unique and inexpensive, so I would encourage you to try this recipe as written at least the first time you make it! But if you don’t have any ramen noodles on hand or you’d prefer to use something different, you could always opt to serve the meat mixture on a bed of rice instead.
