Is there a difference between these two types of beans? My chicken chili calls for Great Northern beans which are often difficult to find. Can I substitute cannellini beans or some other kind of bean?
I have used cannellini beans or navy beans in their place and the results are the same.
There is a difference as they're different varieties of beans, but you can absolutely substitute in this case. I wouldn't necessarily sub the other way around, however. Cannelini beans are finer-textured, IMO, than Great Northern or Navy beans.
Help with dried cannellini beans
Fresh cannellini beans - help please?
