Saweetie shares lesson on 'correct way' to cook ramen, Quavo steps in to help as fans call it 'jail food'
The 'Pretty Bitch Freestyle' rapper says: 'I know you not supposed to do this, but this how I do it' as she pours in Tabasco sauce and Tony Chachere's seasoning into a Cup Noodles
Ramen lovers, you may want to close your eyes for this one. Saweetie has some curious tips on how to cook up a mean noodles dish, but for enthusiasts of the traditional cooking style for the globally loved staple food, the rapper's advice may not be so acceptable.
Taking to her social media on Tuesday (September 22), Saweetie shared a video on both her Instagram and Twitter showing her followers how she likes to eat ramen best. In the humourous 15-second clip, edited with the words, "The correct way to make ramen", the 'Pretty Bitch Freestyle' rapper says: "I know you not supposed to do this, but this how I do it" as she pours in Tabasco sauce and Tony Chachere's seasoning into a Cup Noodles. Switching over to the next step she then says: "Now, you also not supposed to do this, but this how I do it," while pouring out the broth through a strainer into the sink.
The biggest head-turner of her ramen cooking lesson is the final touch when she whips out a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, saying, "Nobody showed me this, but I'm telling you, okay, so don't tell anybody, a'ight" and proceeds to mix the noodles into the bag. Rather chuffed with her concoction, Saweetie then eats the Cheetos'-coated noodles and adds once again, "This how I do it."

"What in the jail food is that😭😭," exclaimed a fan on Instagram while another wrote, "Chill the broth the best part lmaooo." Over on Twitter, fans reacted similarly. One fan asked, "Ya stomach don’t be hurtin, sis?"
