Wahlberg's American Chop Suey

Chop Suey is a New England specialty - One night when I was watching the
popular TV show Wahlburger's... Their adorable mom was making her famous
American Chop Suey and I knew I had to try it...her version is great. I usually 
make my own mother's recipe but this one intrigued me because Alma Wahlberg
added bacon - I was sold. You won't believe how easy and delicious this meal is.

Wahlberg's American Chop Suey

1 pound bacon - diced
1 pound hamburg
1large onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
3 cans whole tomatoes
1 box elbow noodles
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder

1) In a large pot cook bacon until halfway cooked. Then add onion,
bell pepper, hamburg, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook until the
meat is cooked through. Next, add canned tomatoes and crush them
by hand over the pot. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. and
cook the elbow macaroni. Once cooked, drain and add to the meat.

Note - I added garlic powder and 4 cloves of fresh garlic to the meat
mixture when it was cooking. 

Here is my moms version here
