In a small pan, saute the garlic & onion in the oil until translucent. Add the tomato & pepper and continue frying. Add the chicken, salt & pepper. Fry for 3-4 more minutes.
Remove from heat.
In another fry pan, heat about 1″ (inch) corn oil on medium high. The tortillas you use should be of good quality, thin, and 6-7″ long.
In each tortilla, place 1 heaping tbsp of the chicken filling. Carefully roll them up, as tightly as possible. Secure with 3-4 toothpicks.
Fry each in the oil until the tortilla is hard and a golden color.
