You could make it today and then put it in the freezer til a day or two before you need it. Thaw it out and reheat it. It freezes very well.

I second that. If you were making it sooner I'd say freeze it, but no need if it's just gonna be a few days.

Chili and gumbo are always better the next day or two. 8)
