Layer with chicken, then diced peppers, black bean mixture, corn mixture, 1/3 of salsa mixture and lastly 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat again and use remaining ingredients except for last 1/3 of cheese and last tortilla. Finally, layer on the last wrap, sauce and cheese. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake for 15 additional minutes. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
