  • There are several ingredients you can substitute out for their counterparts:
    • Boneless, Chicken thighs > Boneless, Chicken Breast
    • Canned White Beans > Bagged, Great Northern Beans
    • Sour Cream > Greek Yogurt
  • If your like firmer corn you can add the corn in later when you take the chicken out to shred it

  • Use gloves when slicing your jalapenos to avoid burning hands!
