While chicken is cooling chop onions and peppers into small bits. Then place into frying pan with a spoonful of butter or a dab of oil and sautee untill soft. When finished place into seperate tupperware bowl.
While onions and peppers are cooking lay out tortillia shells onto clean table, cutting board or plates and spread butter or margarine onto one side of tortillia shells with a butter knife. This will allow the shells to get toasted.
In a clean skillet place one tortillia shell butter side down. Then sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over shell. Add chopped chicken spread all over shell evenly then add onions and peppers the same way. Top with more shredded cheddar cheese and place another tortillia shell on top butter side up.
