Red Chicken with Toasted Corn Tortillas

This chicken is fast, cheap, easy, and healthy; a real winner all around! It was inspired by a recipe from my local HEB called Enchilada Surprise. I did not have enchilada sauce in my pantry, but I did have tomato sauce that I doctored up. I also wanted to add in some bell peppers for extra veggies and it just so happened that all I had were red bell peppers! Thus, Red Chicken was born....
