How Long Will Leftover Chili Last?

Many people are often left wondering just how long their leftovers will stay good for. Knowing how long you can stretch a meal for is important, especially for those living on a tight grocery budget. Fortunately, we've got all the answers for you here regarding how long chili will last.

When stored properly, chili should last for 3-4 days in the fridge and 4-6 months in the freezer. Proper storage means putting the chili in a sealed container within two hours after cooking. Once thawed, frozen chili can keep for 3-4 days in the fridge. Never thaw frozen chili out on the counter.

Before reheating, examine your leftover chili. Does it look and smell normal? Are there any signs of mold or other nasty issues? If your leftover chili passes the smell and vision test, it should be good to go. If you're still doubtful, give it a little taste. If it tastes okay, then you're good to go. Always trust your gut, and discard anything that you're doubtful of.

We recommend only reheating chili once. Reheating it more times will diminish the quality of it. Only reheat as much chili as you're confident you can eat.
