I've found that the only place in the world that this recipe is called "American Chop Suey" is in and around the Boston area. Everywhere else it is known as goulash. Go into most any diner north of Boston, and "American Chop Suey" is on the lunch menu. This is a one pot meal that is terrific during these budget-conscious times. It is a comfort food that brings back wonderful childhood memories of simpler times. I've told friends that have asked for the recipe that if I give it to them, they have to call it "American Chop Suey", not goulash:).
