Chaos Magic is the name of a magic so powerful that it was thought to be non-existent by even the Sorcerer Supreme himself. This magic can manipulate, warp and reconstruct the very fabric of existence and reality to the user's very whims and bring about total destruction to the cosmos.
Long ago, the Elder God and Arch-Demon Chthon used Chaos Magic to rule the Earth as the "God of Chaos". However, Earth's Mages got together and ended his reign with a lie: They said "There is no God of Chaos. And there is no Chaos Magic."
Chthon would later be sealed within Mount Wundagore, the future birth-place of Wanda Maximoff. The newborn Wanda would be touched by the hand of the degenerate Elder God Chthon, which would leave her with a fraction of his power that would let her control Chaos Energy and alter reality itself beyond recognition. Without Chthon's intervention, Wanda's mutant powers would have instead manifested as simple energy manipulation.
Under the tutoring of Agatha Harkness, Wanda would later go on to learn to harness this mystic Chaos Energy as Chaos Magic (without knowing its true name at first) and use it to a variety of effects beyond the simple Hexes which she innately performed with it previously.
