Cheesy Chicken Fajita Bake topped with Mashed Potato dumplings

I am BACK! The much needed break was very much essential for me to kickstart again ! 😀

Now that I am here, let's bake some Chicken Fajita topped with Mashed Potato dumplings. If you don't bake much, or don't have an oven.. It doesn't matter! Just prepare the same in a casserole dish with a heavy lid or place a sheet of aluminium foil over the casserole and place the lid for the bake effect and place on simmer. 

This Fajita Bake is soo good, coz it's prepared with less ingredients, done in no time, yet the flavors are amazing! 😍 During Ramadan, I happened to experiment and try this flavor combination and we loved it here! But you need to have this piping hot 🔥 😋

Basically the bake consists of a bed of chicken and veggies flavored with Fajita seasoning and then a creamy layer which consists of bechamel sauce with a touch of cream cheese and topped with Mashed Potato dumplings and Mozzarella cheese. True Mexican goodness! 😍 

The Fajita mix is homemade and made with a handful of ingredients. And if at all you have any leftovers, your kids lunch box is sorted too!
