Step 1: Preheat oven to 300°F. Stir together breadcrumbs, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a medium shallow bowl; set aside.
Step 2: Arrange tortillas on a baking sheet in overlapping rows; set aside.
Step 3: Beat eggs and milk together in a small bowl. Dip fish strips into the egg mixture, then coat them with the breadcrumb mixture. Transfer to a plate.
Step 4: Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet until hot but not smoking. Fry fish strips until golden, about 1 minute per side. Transfer fish to baking sheet with tortillas and keep warm in the oven.
Step 5: Heat remaining oil in a saute pan until hot, but not smoking. Add bell pepper, cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes.
