Recipe by Karen From Colorado
A very flexible goulash with a tex-mex flair. The recipe below is basic. Add some rice for something a little different. Or spice the meat mixture up with some green chilies and jalapenos. Also add some chopped bell pepper and corn if desired. Play with it and make it your way.
