Basement lights

I have a an unfinished basement with four 60 W light fixtures and two outlets. I wanted to add some recessed lighting to the ceiling joists. How do I determine the electrical capacity of the basement circuit? How do I proceed ?
Thanks for your time.

(1) Figure out which breaker shuts off the lights.
(2) Shut off the breaker.
(3) Run around the whole house and test every receptacle and every light.
(4) Make a list of everything that no longer has power.
(5) Post back with the list.

Repeat for each basement receptacle if they aren't already on the list (i.e., if they are on a different circuit).
