Jail House Burrito

Quick go grab your college student. They are gonna love this one.

By hearing some guys talk (and not by experience}, I learned this really cool thing to make with Ramen noodles. They were calling it a jail house burrito, but you can just call it a Ramen noodle burrito if it sound better to ya.
I got a little nosey and asked them what exactly it was and how do you make it.
I have made them a couple times. I was in the mood for one today, so I thought I'd show all by blogger friends how. ........Stay with me,  Its easier than it looks.

Here is how you do it.

1.- Get a pack of those 10 cent Ramen noodles of any brand and any flavor.

2.- Before you open them, crush them up really good by using your hand, rolling pin, glass, etc. I used a glass.

3.- Add the seasoning packet

4.- Add water (cold or warm) enough to cover the crushed noodles.

5.- Gently mix the seasoning in by working it with your hand or easily shake it.

6.- Hold the top closed and drain the water.

7.- Now work all the noodles to the bottom and roll. Let the remaining water squeeze out in the process. This gets messy at this point but it will be worth it.


8. After you have a nice tight roll, wrap in a dish cloth, or paper towel to hold it secure.

9.- Cook in microwave for 1 minute.

10.- Leave it wrapped and let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes. Then unwrap it, remove the package paper and its ready to eat.


If you try this, leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it and any variations you may have used.
ENJOY!
