The Day After Christmas Noodles

Use ramen noodles to transform leftover jamon and queso de bola into decadent comfort food

Leftover Christmas ham and queso de bola are great ingredients to use in a bowl of noodles. You can use other kinds of sharp and hard cheeses, but it is important to use cheddar cheese to thicken the sauce. Higher-end ramen noodles are good too, but do not overcook them. Add cream to make this dish feel decadent.
