About Cannellini Bean

The cannellini bean is a favorite of mine for this chili because they don’t get mushy.  These beans are creamy in color and hold their shape better than other beans such as the northern bean.  The cannellini bean is the perfect main ingredient for this Southwestern White Chicken Chili.
