Canned vs. Dried Beans

You may be asking yourself, can I use canned beans? Do I need to buy dried beans? The good news is, you can use either kind! While dried beans are much cheaper, canned beans are usually more convenient. I typically use canned beans because I don’t always plan my recipes in advance.
