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.
