Test Kitchen Tip

Depending on how sweet you like your baked beans (or not) we’re giving a range on the amount of maple syrup to add.


Preheat oven to 425°.

Combine ketchup, brown sugar, onion, 3 Tbsp. vinegar, mustard, tomato paste, and Worcestershire. Reserve ⅓ cup sauce for the beans. Add remaining sauce and chicken to a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 15 minutes. Shred chicken and add back to sauce; keep warm.

Coat tortillas with nonstick spray and season with salt; arrange on a baking sheet. Bake tortillas until crisp and lightly browned, about 8 minutes.

Purée neufchatel, 1 Tbsp. vinegar, jalapeño, and garlic in a mini food processor.

Toss cabbage and parsley with neufchatel mixture; season with salt and pepper and chill until ready to serve.

Heat beans, reserved sauce, and syrup in a saucepan over medium until warmed and thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove beans from heat and lightly mash.

Divide and spread bean mixture among tortillas; top with chicken and slaw.
