simple goulash

Recipe by

This recipe is so simple, but my boys really love this dish. You can adjust the spices to your taste. We like things very spicy. You can also substitute the potatoes for elbow noodles. You could also serve it over cooked rice instead of potatoes. Adjust you cooking time when substituting. I didn't have a picture in my recipe file, so I'll take one and post it the next time I make this dish.
