I use to make this at least once a week when I was a working mom. I had forgotten about it until it was mentioned over Mother's Day by my daughter, so I made it for DH last night and he couldn't understand why it had been so long since I had made it. It's very easy and leftovers are great the next day. This is good served with fresh Italian bread or Garlic bread and a salad. Hope you try and enjoy.

I was so thankful for this recipe today with all the littles running around. It is easy to make and *everyone* liked it! I chopped my onion and pepper with my hand chopper so they would be smaller for the kids. The other change I made was to use a can of corn, plain old everyday corn. With the pepper and onion I did not fell a person really needed the mexicorn. I liked how the cheese sauce packet helps thicken up the goulash just enough so you know it is in there. Barbara, I'll be making this often for the kids and my family. Thank you for posting this recipe. Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2008* game.
Excellent! This is so easy and just good comfort food. Exactly the kind of dinner that my husband likes. I will definitely make this one again.
This is a great recipe when you would like a home-cooked meal but there just isn't enough time. I found using 1/2 tsp. onion powder and no peppers makes even quicker!
