I liked this recipe, but I did not really care for the color.... so next time I think I will use Great Northern Beans. Oh and most importantly, I prefer a good curry powder over the cumin. I like both, but just my opinion.

it is 44 ounces total, or 3 standard size cans (a little under 15 oz each)

I hate when recipes aren't proof read to make sure there isn't anything vague. Since 3 (cans) of black beans doesn't equally go into 44 ounces I'm confused as well. But 3 15 ounces and don't use 1 ?, but 3 44 ouncers and use all. Hey , I need a not a proof reader....lemme know.

I believe it meant a total of 44 oz for the black beans! At least that is the way it came across to me!
