Actually, all COOKED foods are usually good for 5 days, considering they have not been in the "danger zone" for more than or up to, 41 degrees to 140 degrees, more than 4 hours, and at which point the food in question has been brought up to a temperature of 165 degrees for at least 5 minutes (constantly) before consuming.

You shouldn't eat it past 4 days .. but .. you can freeze chili, it works really well and it will stay good for 6 mos :)

I was always told 7 days for cooked foods. It doesn't matter how many times it's been reheated as long as it's stored at the proper temperature. Personally I have kept refrigerated food much longer than that and never had any problems.
