We heat the olive oil in a large pan. We add the onions and saute until they are translucent. Next we add the peppers, cooking for a few more minutes. We add the mushrooms, sauteeing until tender. Finally, we add the garlic and chili powder and cook for a minute. We add a little chicken stock and the chicken, heating for a couple of minutes to warm up the the chicken strips.

We cover a plate with a paper towel and put the tortillas on top. We cover the tortillas with another paper towel and cook in the microwave for a minute.

We serve the chicken mixture over the warm tortillas with the lettuce, sour cream, salsa and a squeeze of lime.
