Southwestern Goulash Recipe

 Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • ⅔ cup frozen corn (I used 1 cup)
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  2. While the water is boiling and pasta is cooking, prepare the ground beef and vegetables. In a large skillet set over medium heat, cook the beef and onion, stirring and breaking up the meat into small crumbles, until meat is no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, corn, tomato sauce, chilies, cumin, pepper and salt. Bring to a boil then lower the heat to a gentle simmer and continue to cook, uncovered, for 4-56minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Drain macaroni and add to the meat/vegetable mixture. Stir in the cilantro and heat through. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more salt, pepper, cumin, etc. to taste.
