Teach me to make Mexican restaurant beans

Last weekend I went out for Mexican food with some friends. I'm from Toronto, where Mexican food is much less common than it seems to be in the US, and I have limited experience with Mexican food.

The beans that they served with the rice were fantastic. I must make them. Owing to limited familiarity with the cuisine, I don't where to start. They were in a kind of rough puree, a bit spicy, and very savoury. Not refried beans- they were more goopy. I think the bean type was probably pinto.

I'm guessing that they had lard in them, but beyond that I'm stumped. Any ideas or recipes?
