Are beans really a magical fruit?

Just a wild idea that popped from my pea brain.

Nah I usually crock pot my beans (navy or pinto) with salt pork or fat back

We'll have a dinner with them as soup beans with fried potatoes and cornbread and stick them in the fridge

a day or so later (for pintos), I'll drop them in a skillet with some bacon grease, minced garlic, chili powder and cumin and make some refried beans.

my refried beans are way better than anything you are going to get in a can and takes nothing to make once the beans are already cooked.

I have a weird masher thing my wife got from pampered chef that we use to make course mashed potatoes and...refried beans. It basically chops and mashes at the same time. It has 5 spiral-like plastic blades you press down in whatever you are smashing and it cuts and squishes at the same time

I don't like my refried beans to be just paste, I like them to be sort of half beans and paste
