Just a hint - Most canned black beans are about 220 calories a cup. The recipe actually calls for 1 cup of black beans, but the analyzer kept saying 1 cup had about 330 calories, so I just put down 1/2 cup. Please note this if you plan on making the recipe. USE ONE CUP BLACK BEANS unless you like less.
