thats kind of an open question, mate. ;D

could you give a few more specifics?

Does he have a specific traitor legion? Is it mechanised? On foot? shooty? Assaulty?

Tau face off against chaos in exactly the same way that tau face off against marines. you use your mobility and you use terrain to the best of your ability. you focus fire. you put the right shots into the right targets, and you take them down piece by peice. thats the grand concept of it, in any case.

Chaos are just like normal marines, only more close combat focused. But as guardsmen can pummel fire warriors to death its in a way, overkill. they have most of the strengths and weaknesses of normal marines, but they can be taken down. pulse fire can kill chaos marines, and railguns kill chaos armour.

Usually your opponent will let you know at least generally what he is fielding. However, the advise given above should suffice for an "anthing goes" Chaso army. Prioritize your targets and don't get distracted. Keep mobile. And make sure that enough terrain is placed on the board. 25% of the board should be covered in some kind of terrain. Use it to your advantage. Especailly if you have Kroot.

I know I am a n00b and all; but I will tell you what my chaos friend told me: concentrate your fire. Another friend of mine kept losing with Imperial Guard against Chaos for that same reason. If you spread out your units you will just be picking off a couple of space marines here and there. The key, as he told me anyways, was to decimate a particular unit each turn. Take out the heavy weapons unit first...CC guys second, maybe first if they have that cursed blood rage thing (extra D6 movement). Just mass-fire particular units that are main threats...because leaving a bunch of units that are only short a few guys is going to REALLY hurt when they get to you.

This holds true for any army you will ever face. CC and heavies first, depending whats more dangerous and then down one unit a turn. Concentration of fire should be every Tau players first rule.
