2. Remove chicken from pan and set aside to cool.
3. Cook Pepper Stir Fry in same pan with diced tomatoes.
4. While that's cooking, shred chicken with fingers.
5. Warm tortillas in microwave or oven.

    Awesome my son ate it, I added lettuce and tomato on the side and he ate that too. He isn't much of a black bean fan so I cut that in half and mix them with mexican corn. Thank you so much! - 3/28/10

    Very Good
    They were yummy. I had to make a couple of changes because of the sodium issues. I actually used homemade diced tomato and chilis - I harvest my garden and vacpack tons of veggies. And same type pepper stir-fry mix - again from the garden. My husband loved the flavors. - 3/2/09

    just got done eating this and it was wonderful! It seemed to be really messy though because all the juices were running out of the tortilla - 1/31/09
