This dish is inspired by my time working in Phoenix Arizona along with my love of venison and all things delicious! It’s never the SAME as when you eat and experience it THERE with dishes like this but recreating it at home with friends and family bring the memories back full bore!! You can abso- lutely make this dish your own by swapping out a few ingredients…like bear or gator or hog for venison!
