One-Pot Spicy Beef Mushroom Green Chile 'Goulash'

Tammye Bridgeman


I cook 'big', so this recipe will provide several servings & leftovers.
I like to build flavor, plus
we like 'heat', which is easy to adjust to your tastes. Just don't be tempted to add extra pasta, it's meant to be 'saucy'.
The 'star' ingredient are good green chilies from Hatch, New Mexico for full flavor. I order mine online, but sometimes get lucky & find the real thing, certain times of the year, in our grocer's freezer section. Plus, we have family in New Mexico!
