EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Cannellini beans are large white kidney beans. Feel free to substitute any kind of bean in this recipe. Use your favorite, or try great northern, lima, butter or pinto beans.

Instead of using taco shells, take a bag of tortilla or corn chips to the party. Everyone can spoon the spicy shredded chicken over the chips and add their own toppings.
