American Chop Suey ( My Way)

 American Chop Suey ( My Way)– My family loves this. I love it because its easy and delicious. Always a winner in my book.

We are all about simple and easy in this house. But I do like to change things up a bit here and there too. But always keeping it simple too.  

So one day I decided to add bacon to my chop suey and we had a winner!!  I mean bacon makes everything taste better

I make chop suey a few different ways but this one is  definitely a winner!! 

This is one of my favorite comfort foods growing up. I’ve only changed a few things in my mother’s version. I add garlic and garlic powder and more tomatoes. The green bell pepper is optional, but my husband likes it.

This recipe makes a big batch, and the leftovers are delicious, too.  The Sauce can be frozen and used for a leter date when you don’t feel like making a dinner.

Depending on where you are and region your from, American Chop Suey   can be called Chili Mac, Beefaroni and Goulash. Somehow I think they are all pretty delicious!

Make this today!! You will love it!
