Shelling beans?

I can't believe I am so removed from where my food comes from that I have to ask this question.

I grew some green beans this summer, I think the seeds were labeled 'filet beans'. After a few harvests, I got lazy and the seeds started plumping up- so can I shell them and cook them like cranberry beans? I think the answer is obvious, but would hate to poison anyone!
