Dried to canned beans conversion

            Dried to canned beans conversion

Here is a conversion chart that I compiled to help me use more dry beans. All numbers are approximate, of course, but they've worked for me so far.

A standard can of beans is 15 ounces. Small bags of beans you get at the store are usually 1 pound, but sometimes 2.


1 15-ounce can of beans equals
  • 1/2 cup dry beans, before cooking
  • 1 1/2 cups beans, after cooking

1 pound dry beans equals
  • 2 cups dry beans, before cooking
  • 6 cups beans, after cooking
  • 4 15-ounce cans of beans

1 part dry beans equals
  • 3 parts cooked beans
