As a child, our family’s budget was incredibly tight. In order to stretch pantry items to feed a family of four, my mom used to whip up goulash from time to time. I remember it being comforting and delicious, and something that we always enjoyed eating. Although many years have passed since those days, having practical budget saving recipes in our culinary repertoire still makes sense. This recipe puts a Southwestern spin on my mom’s classic standby with yummy results. Read more of this post

The addition of chardonnay and tomatoes adds a new dimension to the flavor profile that is simply yummy.  Read more of this post
