My Big Girls Favorite Goulash!

Old is only a word, right?  Well tomorrow I will feel old!  My oldest daughter will be 22!  Along with our other daughters, she has been a blessing.  She receives her Aggie Ring in November and graduates from college in May!  We couldn't be prouder!  

Whenever she comes home...she wants our local Mexican food restaurants chips and hot sauce first - and then this dish.  It was the first thing she cooked at college for friends when they all took turns Summer 1 session cooking for each other during the week and watching their favorite summer shows.  

Happy Birthday my big girl!  Now all you have to do is access Mom's site to get your favorite recipes!

My Big Girls Favorite Goulash

2 lbs ground meat, browned (cooked until pink is gone - and drained) :o) - we use Certified Hereford Beef 
1 can stewed tomatoes or canned tomatoes, chopped
1 can Rotel Tomatoes with green chili’s (I like the one with cilantro & lime juice best)
1 onion, chopped
¼ cup sugar
3 tsp. chili powder
4 cans water ( or more as needed to mixture cooks and does not dry out and cause pasta to stick or burn)

2 cups bowtie, egg or macaroni noodles
1 tsp. garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste (1 tsp. of each)
1/ 4 block of large Velvetta Cheese – equals 1 cup chopped
Optional – ½ bell pepper or sweet banana pepper, chopped

Brown hamburger meat and drain. Add tomatoes with liquid from can. Add on onion, sugar, chili powder, water, noodles and spices. Bring to a boil and then down to a simmer (low heat). Cook on low, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender. Add Velvetta Cheese the last 10 minutes or it will stick. Cook in a non stick – Teflon – pan.

Get cooking!

Great idea! Storing all your tried and true families recipes up online. Some time in the future your girls will be moms, and they will have all the recipes you cooked for them while growing up right here for them to cook for their young 'uns. They too will add theirs to the collection as well. I bet you'll be proud.
