Is it safe to eat?

irunwithmonkeys | Feb 10, 201108:05 AM     33

I made a big crockpot of chili last night with ground beef. Well, I turned it off and left the lid open to cool down so I could stick it in the fridge for the night. And of course, I forgot all about it. So it's been sitting on the counter with the lid open all night long. :( My house thermostat is set at 65. Do you think it's safe to eat the chili if I nuke in the microwave? I'm super paranoid about food posioning so I'm hesitant to do so. Any thoughts?
