Refried beans are fried in oil/lard, once. They aren't fried twice, which is what the English adjective would have us believe.

Refried is the *bad* English translation of refritos (which means fried, emphasis added by re- prefix). So, refried beans are beans (black or pinto) that have been soaked overnight, cooked, mashed into a paste and fried in lard or oil with seasonings (and sometimes onions and peppers).

En Madrid usamos la palabra judías, pero en otros sitios de España es distinto. Las palabras para referirse a comidas varían mucho de unas zonas a otras.

I say "judías", too. "Judías" can be "judías verdes", a vegetable with the pod, or "judías secas", what you know as "frijoles". There're some varieties (pintas, blancas, ...), in Valencia one variety is "garrafones", used to do the "paella valenciana", they're very big beans.

@María José: "poblano" might refer to "chiles poblanos". Some sort of hot "pimiento morrón".

White beans here are called "alubias". They have a nice sweet taste.
