Question Riddle me this.........

Why are refried beans called refried when they are not fried?




















Brought to you by the feeble mind of an old guy.

Because they are previously cooked and warmed ("fried") in oil, shortening, or bacon fat and mashed. Maybe REfried is a misnomer since they are being fried for the first time.

Either way, Yummm...

Sounds good enough to me to call this matter settled.

Why do we say "reckless" when someone isn't thinking or caring about the consequences of an action? Shouldn't it be "reckfull"?

I've done this before. But this wasn't the second time they got fried. Thus not "re-fried". Just warmed up in a skillet.

, beans are put in the pan with lard\bacon fat, and massed and cooked until the juices dried up.
A big difference then normal beans only being massed and warmed up... the flavor profile is way better, hence the name fried, as they are kinda bacon fat \lard fried in the pan
this being my familias way,south tejas style
