Southwestern Weight Watchers Goulash Recipe

Southwestern Weight Watchers Goulash

Goulash brings back so many childhood memories for me. When I was growing up we visited my Grandma’s house on Sunday for a family dinner. Goulash was one of my favorite meals. It’s comfort food to me. That is why I had to make this Weight Watchers Goulash recipe and add a bit of a southwestern flair.
