Dried Beans to Canned Conversion Table

All measurements are approximate. The exact amount of beans you receive from a can or a bag of dried beans depends on the size of bean. Large beans will be on the low side of these measurements while small beans will have a slightly higher yield.

1 cup dried beans = 2-3 cups cooked beans = 1 ½ 15.5 ounce cans

One 15.5 ounce can of beans = 1 ½ cups cooked = ¾-to-1 cup dried

1 lbs. of dried beans = 2-2 ½ cups dried = 4-5 cups cooked = 3-4 15.5 oz. cans
