My dad was a Navy cook for 23 years, upon retirement he came home to the Phoenix area where he was a second generation native resident and began to cook his local favorite dishes for the Phoenix Police department. As time went on and as technology changed he adapted his basic techniques to include slow cookers and adapted recipes to fit that cooking style, one of his favorite local flavors was pork green chili, this is his recipe it brings back great memories of my dad who passed three years ago it is a holiday and hunting camp staple for my family and I.
