My neighbor bought a cookbook for her son and I was flipping through it and saw this recipe. I told her it looked pretty good. The next thing I know she was calling me up and saying, "I have almost all the ingredients to make this but do you have this and this and this.....?" Well, I did and so we made it together and split it. She had to make a copy of the recipe for me so I could make it anytime I wanted. It is so good. Great for those cold, yucky days or nights. It looks like a lot of work but it is not, trust me.

My family puts up with this dish. I REALLY like it. It is my make it one night put it in a large crock bag in the frig. Morning put in crock pot and dinner is ready when I get home. We use peas instead of green beans and pasta instead of tortilla I leave out the green pepper or use red and no olives because the kids won't eat them. I think the family likes it more than they let on. It is a 2 meal dinner for us. And it is always gone the second day. I pick up a loaf of fresh french bread and they are happy with my quick meal. It has been years since I have seen this recipe anywhere. Thanks for taking the time to post. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I like it.

Very good goulash! My choice for My-3-Chefs was goulash and this was one of my selections. Only made a few changes. First I totally omited the green beans, they just didin't seem to go with goulash. Then I wanted a little bit more of a Mexican taste so I added a little bit of chili powder, and some dry cilantro. Thanks for a good recipe ladyautumn.
