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.
