Saute peppers for four minutes or until they are just tender-crisp; season with salt and pepper; set aside. Spray a 12 count muffin pan with cooking spray; place one quartered section of tortilla in each muffin cup. Place another piece of tortilla on top, facing the other direction to form a cup. Place one tsp. cheese in the bottom of each cup. Distribute chicken mixture, peppers, beans and salsa into each tortilla cup. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted.
