If what you crave is serious comfort with a kick, a pat of butter and a sprinkle of chile flakes will take you there.

Why You Should Use This Instant Upgrade

Think of the comfort you get from plain buttered noodles — it’s even better when savory broth and a bit of spice is involved. The richness from the butter complements and balances the spice from the chile flakes for an instant ramen experience that’s just a little more luxurious.

How to Make It

Prepare the instant ramen according to the instructions on the package. Pour into a bowl, stir in chile flakes, top with a pat of butter, and stir until melted. Serve immediately.
