To freeze, cool the chili down completely in the fridge. Once chilled, store in freezer-safe zip-top plastic bags or containers and freeze. When ready to eat, let frozen container thaw completely in the fridge or defrost in the microwave. Reheat on the stove or in the microwave until completely warm.
