With all of the sugar that is in the spotlight this week, I thought I should share something a little more healthy. I’ve had this ground beef goulash recipe since college, and it has always been a family favorite. It is easy to throw together, and my kids love it! You can change the spices up with whatever your family likes, or whatever you happen to have in your pantry.


It is really yummy after the cheese gets all melty and gooey on top. Mmmm. I think it would make a great dinner for Halloween night. It’s always good to fill the kids up with something warm and filling before they hit the streets. This goulash recipe fits the bill!

Easy Ground Beef Goulash

1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 15oz cans diced tomatoes
3 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp sugar
1-2 cups frozen corn
Hot cooked rice
Grated cheddar cheese

Cook  ground beef and chopped onion in a large pan. I use my dutch oven. Drain any fat. Add minced garlic, tomatoes, and spices. Simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add sugar and frozen corn and heat through. Serve over cooked rice and garnish with grated cheese.
