Cowboy Goulash is my twist on a the traditional goulash recipe. This version features lot of Tex-Mex flavors and just a kick of spice. If you’re looking for comfort food with a lot of flavor this recipe is for you.Today I’m teaming up with a few other bloggers to help raise funds for our favorite charity to help support hurricane relief in Houston. We have each selected a Texas style or Texas inspired recipe to post today. For me it’s impossible to think about Texas and not think about cowboys. Both the cowboys in boots and the Cowboys in cleats.I’m supporting the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). This organization is amazing and they offer assistance for everything from providing meals to helping with the labor of rebuilding damaged homes. And, unlike other national organizations 100% of the money you give to them goes to victim assistance. I’ll let you know at the end of the post how you can donate to this group.When I was younger my mother used to make this 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.
