Ingredient Notes: 

White Beans: White beans (also known as navy beans) are loaded with benefits. They have antioxidants, fiber, protein, and that’s only to list a few.

Cheese: For this recipe I used cheddar and queso cheese, however, you can swap these out for your favorite cheeses or even vegan cheeses if you have dietary restrictions.
