1lb dry beans (~2cups) cooked yields about 6 cups cooked, so for the recipe you will need 1.5 cups cooked beans.

I find that 1/2 lb of beans makes about 3-3.5 cups of cooked, so about 1.5 or so of fresh sounds right. Do they expand at all when fresh?

hello and thanks very much! no they don't expand very much and i'm never sure of the equivalences -- coulda looked it up, but decided to ask instead ;-)
