In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; saute chicken until golden, about 3 minutes. Remove to plate; set aside.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in orange pepper, tomato and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes.

Return chicken and any juices to pan. Add barbecue sauce; cook, stirring, until coated and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 3 minutes.

Divide chicken mixture among tortillas; roll up. Place, seam side down, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each with one-quarter of the Monterey Jack cheese and Cheddar cheese. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until cheese is bubbly and golden, 5 to 7 minutes.
