Unless you can see the pot of beans simmering on the stove, you can bet your boots that fast food beans are almost always made with dried bean powder. Add a bit of water and some heat, and you have the swill that fast food joints serve as refried beans. One Taco Johns employee said, "I would steer clear of the beans, at least outside of peak hours, because they sit on the hot table for a long long time and when they dry out, just add water." No nutrition, all the gas-producing enzymes, and a whole lot of yuck.
