Drunken noodles is a Chinese influenced dish and there are many versions of this dish. Contrary to its name, there is no alcohol in the dish. However in my version I have added a bit of tequila. One theory around the name of the dish is that the dish is so spicy, you need a cold beer to combat the heat.
But regardless of what the dish is called, it’s delicious. In my version I cut down the spiciness a bit by using less chiles but feel free to use as much as you can handle.
This dish is perfect for a weeknight dinner because it’s so easy to make and you can have it ready in 30 minutes or less.
