Goulash Origin:

For me, the goulash origin is my grandma! 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.

    I am looking for recipes like this that taste good, but they never have a calorie and nutrient chart. That is what is necessary for my weight loss/management program. It would be so nice and very helpful if included or added, etc.

    Thank you
