She might not just be “Jenny from the Block” anymore, but Jennifer Lopez can still cook it old school.

The star was spotted making a traditional Puerto Rican meal for her longtime friend Leah Remini on Monday.

“My cute girl @jlo making us dinner #boricua #NYLACrew,” Remini captioned the video on Instagram.

Lopez looks fresh-faced, wearing a black and white knitted sweater, while she adds adobo seasoning to her pollo guisado (a Puerto Rican chicken stew).

“Here’s my girl, making some Puerto Rican food for everybody,” says Remini, while recording the clip. “Just a normal Puerto Rican girl at home cooking a meal.”

The former King of Queens actress—who opened up about her decision to leave Scientology in this week’s issue of PEOPLE (on newsstands Friday)—is met with a laugh and a “be quiet” from Lopez as she tries to concentrate on her cooking skills.

Remini recently revealed Scientology asked her to invite Lopez to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ 2006 wedding.

“They were trying to extract me,” she said of the wedding during a 20/20 interview. “I can only assume because they wanted to make Jennifer a Scientologist. Maybe I was barring that road for them.”

I wish they were my friends and I could be invited.

What kind of guisado was that? More like a strategically planned video. She sprinkled some adobo on chicken and put in an empty pot. I bet there was a cook in the back somewhere that finished that guisado.

I love it when people identify with their home countries, and I really hope if they love those countries that much, that they decide to move their carcasses out of the US and back there ASAP!

@gohome, get some education, sweetheart. Puerto Rico is part of the US. Idiot.

Missy on

I can’t believe JLo has the time to be a good friend and cook a home cooked meal on top everything else she does. JLo is wonder woman!

Guest on

I find them equally annoying and fake. If only their talent matched their inflated egos. A perfect match.

Jeena on

Aw, she’s cooking for her kids…Casper, Max and Emme. How nice.

@Go home, your Trump education is showing. Jennifer Lopez is of Puerto Rican decent. Puerto Rico is a U.S territory. Moron.

Sue on

@ Go home: why should that upset you so much and threaten you that JLo identify with her Puerto Rican roots, and Latino cooking? Do you do that with Italians? Irish, Greeks who cook their dishes? Get over your bigotry, and get anger-management!

Non story and though I’m not a JLo fan, I have respect for her sticking by her friend and not being a lackey to those Hollywood cultists.

Jlo is a classless no talent ho!

No she is not a Puerto Rican girl at home! First of all, she’s an old lady. Secondly, she needs to grow up, put on some clothes and stop acting stupid. She does not represent Puerto Ricans. She sprinkled some Adobo on some chicken? Big deal. Be who you really are. A self entitled nitwit with no class.

You can also look at the yards per throw but that’s partially addressed in the total yardage stat above. Her receipt is $10,250 and transporting cost reaches $17,000 a month. On larger maps the Shadow is in fact the Core’s best option for mounting an effective early-game offensive.

I have been browsing online for over 4 hours today, but I haven’t found any interesting article like yours. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers produce good articles like what you have done, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

This is an excellent, an eye-opener for sure! That cleared it up for me. I discovered your website by luck I think the admin of this web post is really working hard in support of his web site, since here every material is quality based information. Hey, that is a clever way of thinking about it.
