What is the best way to cool my large stock pot of chili? I want to reheat and serve it tomorrow for a family get together?

Consider reducing the quantity or size of the food you're cooling. Another option is to create an ice-water bath: Divide the foods into smaller quantities in pots or pans, and then place these into a sink or larger container filled with ice water, stirring to cool the food. When you reheat your soup, remember that the internal temperature must reach at least 165 degrees F within 2 hours to guarantee a safe good product.
