  1. Could you substitute shredded port with shredded chicken? Would you need to change anything else if you do?

  2. Good Morning Stephanie! This recipe sounds like a winner for my fiance, who loves everything pulled pork. I am a bit embarrassed to admit however that I have never heard of ranch beans. Are they a southern staple? I’m in Michigan and don’t recall ever seeing them in the store. Is there a substitution, or do they go by another name?
