Cowboy Goulash is my twist on a the traditional goulash recipe. This version features lots of Tex-Mex flavors with just a enough spice to give it a kick. If you’re looking for an easy comfort food that with a lot of flavor this recipe is for you.
When I was younger my mother used to make this Cowboy Goulash it was always one of my favorites. It has remained one of my favorite comfort foods since childhood. In college I made it for friends and sorority sisters before a big cram session for midterms and finals. Over the years I’ve changed a couple things in this recipe. I’ve added the jalapeño and Ro-Tel to give it a little kick. I added the Worcestershire sauce to give the recipe a little bit of a smokey flavor. I think adding these three things have really given this recipe more of a Tex-Mex feel.
Now as I said at the beginning of this post I I’m teaming up with a few other food bloggers to help raise awareness and funds for Hurricane Harvey Relief.
