My Fave Drugstore Buys!

So, I ABSOUTELY love Wal-Greens! I could walk around that store for hours... and I HAVE!! (AND Target! LOL!) There's just soo much there, with a cure or fix for just about anything! Here are some of the MAJOR great products I've found there, & here they are;

Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask - Best for blemishes! And smells soooo minty, and feels major refreshing!

Burt's Bees Lip Balm - Just the plain ole stuff in the yellow tube. Works good for dry skin patches too,  if you don't have lotion.

Vaseline - For moisturizing, removing makeup, blending makeup, protecting skin from hair-dye, ... the possibilities are ENDLESS!!

Veet Hair Removal Kit - If you're as bad at shaving as I am, you'll love this kit! With a bladeless razor & thick formula, this kits rocks!

Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer for Body / Face - Daily tanning w/ no harmful rays .. ALWAYS good!!

One a Day Womens Vitamin Packets - LOVE these! Nommy flavor, & vitamins are good!

Q-tips - ..Just like Vaseline, the possibilites are endless!

1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half
2 tablespoons minced green onion
2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Rub 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over chicken breast. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook chicken approximately 5 minutes per side, until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove from heat and set aside.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in green onion and red pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until tender.

Dice chicken and mix into the pan with onion and red pepper. Mix in corn, black beans, spinach, jalapeno peppers, parsley, cumin, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until well blended and tender. Remove from heat and stir in Monterey Jack cheese so that it melts.

Spoon even amounts of the mixture into each tortilla. Fold ends of tortillas, then roll tightly around mixture. Secure with toothpicks. Arrange in a medium dish, cover with plastic, and place in the freezer. Freeze at least 4 hours.
