Beef and Tomato Macaroni Soup

Beef and Tomato Macaroni Soup

You may remember this as “Goulash” or “Cowboy Delight” but lets be honest, what kind of names are those for a dinner meal? Definitely not the classiest, but that doesn’t really matter I guess does it? What really matters is that this is one hundred percent, homestyle comfort food right here. Just like what mom used to make. I have been craving this stuff for years and everyone has always laughed and said “wait you like that stuff?” Yes, I love the stuff and I was out to prove it can be delicious, so today I’m sharing my version that’s a step up from some of the sugary ketchup versions your mom may have made :).
