1- home cooked black beans can also be used; I measured out 15 oz on a kitchen scale which included a small amount of the cooking liquid. If you use home cooked black beans you do not need to puree the liquid with the other ingredients first; just place all ingredients in the processor and blend together.
  • fridge- store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • freezer- freeze in freezer bags (freeze flat, then store upright), or meal prep containers for up to 3 months.
