This pale vegetarian chili is both pretty to look at and delicious to eat. Add the cream cheese if you prefer a thicker, cheesier sauce, and the mild green chilies for a flavor boost. Serve with hot crusty bread and a salad of sliced tomatoes in vinaigrette for a great meal. TIP: If you prefer a thicker chili, mash some or all of the beans or puree in a food processor before adding to the recipe.
