Black beans - canned instead of dried

I want to make Delia's Black Bean Chilli but here in Saudi Arabia I can only get canned cooked ones. Can anyone help with suggested weight of cooked beans I should use? The recipe uses 8oz (225g) dried beans. The cans (15oz, 425g) have a drained weight of 9.6oz (273g).

dried pulses

On average the soaked then cooked weight is 3X the dried weight, with a bit of variety between types of pulses.
