Scaling for bread bowls

I am thinking of making Sourdough bread bowls for chili or stew. The bread will be just plain San Francisco style sourdough. For a hearty serving, what should I scale my dough boules to? A serving is, say, 2- 2 1/2 cups of stew.

Thanks.

That's a hearty serving size!

Consider this KA bread bowl recipe, their bowls are around 140g each, to hold 1/2c of filling:

For 2c, I'm guessing a sourdough doughball of around 750g will do.
