Lopez’ Latin cheat meal

Jennifer Lopez’s go-to late night snack is a plate of pork chops.

The 48-year-old singer and actress missed her Puerto Rican mother’s home cooked Latin meals when she moved from her hometown New York to Los Angeles so her mum taught her how to recreate the comfort food over the phone for Jennifer to tuck into when she feels like a cheat meal.

In her cover star interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, she tucked into a plate of fried pork chops with white rice and vegetables known as chuletas after a long day on set and said: “When I first moved to L.A., I called home and I was like, ‘Mommy, I miss your cooking, I asked her to show me how to make the recipes, so she taught me over the phone.”
