      this was really good. my dh said it is a definite repeat; he isn't a huge fan of the multitude of creamy chicken recipes. ;) i didn't have cannellini beans but looked it up and read great northern beans can be used instead. they were a good substitute- i didn't put them in until the very end b/c they are already a soft bean. i also added a little salsa (the chicken was getting a little dry) and lime (had it on hand). thanks for the recipe!

      This was excellent! I used chicken breasts because I'm not a huge fan of dark meat !

      These Chicken and Bean Tacos were excellent. The crock pot chicken is juicy and so full of flavor. The next time this recipe is made, I will add more chicken so I have plenty left-over chicken to enjoy. Also, I really liked the mashed cannellini beans so I will be adding 2 cans next time. I think pinto beans would also be good in this recipe. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for My 3 Chefs Fall 2008.
