Why are they called "refried beans"?

The name “refried beans” is actually misleading because the beans have only been fried once. The name is derived from the Spanish phrase for the food—frijoles refritos. “Refritos” means “well fried” or "intensely fried,” not "fried again," so the English version is just a bad translation.
