Tips  

Chop suey is not a Chinese dish but rather a Chinese-Americal creation. It's usually made with meat, chicken or shrimp, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, mushrooms and onions. This variation adds a touch of color with red or green pepper.

Add the bean sprouts just before serving to keep them crisp and crunchy.
