“I’m grateful to whoever saw beans fried once and said, ‘This isn’t enough’”

“Refried beans” (frijoles refritos in Spanish) are actually fried just once, but there are jokes.
   
“Grateful to the visionary who saw beans that had only been fried one time and thought, ‘this isn’t enough’” was posted on Twitter by Ginny Hogan_ on May 11, 2020. “I’M GRATEFUL TO WHOEVER SAW BEANS FRIED ONCE AND SAID, ‘THIS ISN’T ENOUGH’” was posted on Facebook by Indian Hills Community Sign on October 4, 2020.
   
   
Wikipedia: Refried beans
Refried beans (Spanish: frijoles refritos) is a dish of cooked and mashed beans and is a traditional staple of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine, although each cuisine has a different approach when making the dish. Refried beans are also popular in many other Latin American countries.
 
In this dish, after being boiled and then mashed into a paste, the beans are fried or baked, though as they are fried only once, the term “refried” is misleading. As described by Rick Bayless, “they’re refritos—not fried again, as you might assume, but “well fried” or “intensely fried,” as that re translates from Spanish.”
