Black beans are all the rage in Tex-Mex these days. I use them instead of refried beans all the time. They are healthier, and I think they taste better.
Charro beans are traditional Mexican beans that most Tex-Mex restaurants are offering around here as an option to refried beans. Still pinto beans, but more of a bean soup, rather than the paste consistency of refried beans. I prefer charro beans, myself.
