Tonight's dish is one of my favorites, because it is flavorful, spicy, made in a crock-pot and within anyone's budget!
It's Spicy Goulash! What is Goulash? Good question, it is a Hungarian stew that is made up of meat, noodles, vegetables and spices.
My goulash makes 12 servings, so there is PLENTY of left overs or a great dish to make for company; as it totals out to $1.48 PER SERVING! ALSO it's only 210 calories per servings to boot. When was the last time you where able to feed up to 12 people for under $20 and the meal be healthy, chalked full of filling foods, and delicious? I do believe this is a winner for nutritious and affordable.
