When we do a big batch of chili we leave a serving in the fridge for the next day or two (improves the flavor) and freeze the rest.  Frozen, we feel 'safe' for up to 60 days, but it is usually long gone before that!

It's not good to keep the chili very long a the fridge. It may accumulate bacteria during a long period and could be harmful. I suggest you tossed after a few days to ensure food safety.

I know this post is old, but thanks for it. I've been deciding whether to heat up some chili I made 1.5 weeks ago. I didn't know I should let the chili cool rapidly and not let stand room temperature.
 
So, do I put it in my container sealed, and put it in the freezer for a bit, but then open the container so it doesn't explode.. like to let the hot air out a little, and keep doing this?
 
Or do I just stick it in the freezer open for a little while? Maybe 10 minutes is not enough time to get freezer burn?

3) Of all the things we do to foods, by far the leading cause of foodborne illness is improper cooling and reheating of leftovers. All leftovers (including chili) need to be cooled rapidly and not left to stand at room temperature to cool...in fact, in the temperature range of 40°–140°, bacteria can double their numbers every 20 minutes!!
