Hopefully this will come in handy
I know it will be helpful for budget cooking because it's hard to get anything cheaper than dried beans!
Average for most beans (not guaranteed)
1/2 cup dried beans = 1 (15oz) can of beans, or 1 1/2 cups cooked and drained
1 cup dried beans = 3 cups cooked and drained
1 pound dried beans = 2 cups dry beans, before cooking
or 6 cups beans, after cooking
or 4 15-ounce cans of beans
