Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, tomato, and green bell peppers; cook and stir until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in shredded chicken, 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon, and black pepper; cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Spoon some of the chicken mixture into the middle of each corn tortilla. Fold tortilla around filling and secure with a toothpick.
