Spicy Goulash / Chili Mac

I first heard of goulash from my mother in law. I had never had it before her. I enjoy hers, very tasty. I’ve never gotten the recipe though.
So when I saw this, I thought I’d give the old goulash a try.
This is nothing like moms. At all.

It is, however, quite delicious. And I got to use my slow cooker, which made me very happy.
This may be called spicy but it really isn’t. It’s quite flavorful and tasty. More like a chili mac.
Maybe someday I’ll get mom’s recipe…
