Are they the same as our British baked beans?

Thanks chaps.
I also checked on the interwebs and they are much the same with the main difference to me being ours aren't mashed.
They're actually quite healthy here (baked) and a staple of my diet.
Which makes the word I learnt while reading about the tex mex variety appropriate.
"carminative, which means it reduces the gas associated with beans."

Pulses aka Legumes aka beans are proven to add years to your life
If your gut biome is messed-up, yes
Beans, beans, the magical fruit, more you eat the more you toot
The are a super-food

American refried beans are typically pinto beans
You are most likely having "white" beans in a can of Baked Beans
I especially like black beans aka Turtle Beans

What are "English Baked Beans" and how are they prepared? My Nephew married a young lady from England and adopted her 7 year old son. He usually asked to have Toast & "Proper Beans" for breakfast.

English baked beans are the furthest thing from Mexican refried beans.

English baked beans are very similar to Cambells canned pork and beans with more of a tomato-y sauce.
