Stir to cook down, so that vegetables soften for 5 min.
Add tomatoes, salt and oregano. Bring to a boil stirring every few minutes. Then reduce heat to medium #5-6 and cook for 20 min. stirring every few minutes to prevent scorching.
In a small preheated skillet, add 1 tbsp EVOO and peppers. Cook on medium high heat, while stirring to soften the vegetables 3-5min. Turn off heat, leaving on the burner. To continue to cook while cooling.
Meanwhile in a large preheated skillet, brown both sides of the tortillas. Set aside.
Place a ladle of tomato sauce(no vegetables) on the bottom of a round casserole dish large enough to hold the tortillas.
Place one toasted tortilla in casserole dish. Add another ladle of sauce with vegetables. Add 1/5 of the chicken, 3-4 slivers of peppers, roasted vegetables, 2-4 dollops of cream cheese, distribute 1/5 of the cheese.
Top with another toasted tortilla and continue until all of the filling and tortillas are finished.
Top with a tortilla and sprinkle the remaining cheddar.

You can make the tomato sauce ahead of time and refrigerate up to 3 days in advance. Use cold when needed to make the pie...no need to warm it up.
