Soak 2 1/4 cups dried beans for each can called for. Thats a pretty good equivalent and the one I use for my soups.

You know you can do it, because in the end, you are the one who determines your weight. That said, I'm here for support if you want it. ^^

A cup is 8 ounces, so 15.5 ounces would be about 2 cups. If you are soaking the beans first, I'm not sure if 2 cups dry would equal 2 cups soaked, so you might have a few extras if they grow in size.

I don't buy canned beans anymore, but I want to make a recipe that calls for 2 15.5oz cans of black beans. I buy dried and cook them myself so how many cups of cooked dried beans would I need to equal a 15.5oz can?
