Black-eyed peas. They turn up in the Carolingian Capitularies, as do 
salt pork and a variety of greens. The transplanted southerners are 
happy about that. Lentils too- and I've been cooking lentils with onion 
and bits of carrots and some chicken broth and a bit of wine, and adding 
cumin- a lot of it- and some grains of paradise. Sharpen it a tiny bit 
with verjus or vinegar, and you have something a lot like chili that 
isn't actually chili. :-)
