Start by browning the ground beef in a skillet. Add chopped onions, minced garlic, chili powder, and cumin
In a separate pot, cook the elbow macaroni until it's tender but still firm. Drain and set it aside.
In a saucepan, melt cream cheese into warm milk, creating a creamy cheese sauce. Stir in shredded cheddar cheese until it's smooth and luscious.
Combine the cooked macaroni with your homemade chili and half of the cheese sauce. Mix everything until it's well coated.
Transfer your chili mac and cheese mixture into a baking dish. Drizzle the remaining cheese sauce over the top.
Sprinkle a mixture of bread crumbs and melted butter over the top. Bake until it's golden brown and bubbling with cheesy goodness.
Allow your Baked Chili Mac and Cheese to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy the comforting and flavorful fusion of chili and macaroni.
