Air Fry Chicken and Cheese Flautas

Hi guys, I know I have posted this recipe before but this time I have a video on it and wanted to that with you.

These flautas are just so good and much healthier now that we are using an air fryer rather than frying them in a lot of oil.  Feel free to check out my video on on my channel Ruthycancook and subscribe while you are there.



1-½ lbs. of meat of your choice (rotisserie chicken, steak, etc.)

1 pk of Corn tortillas

2 cups Cheese of your choice (I normally use a Mexican cheese)

Oil for air fryer 1 tsp. (I use a spray bottle with oil)




Take the cooked meat and try to cut them into strips so they fit the length of tortilla.

Take a tortilla and put the meat, and come cheese inside and then roll the tortilla into a tube. Place toothpicks if needed to hold the Flautas together.

Air fryer: Put them in the air fryer one by one at 380 for about 10 minutes.  Note: Check to make sure they are at the crispness you want.


Chicken seasoning (if not using rotisserie)

Chicken seasonings

1 tbsp. Sazon complete

1 tbsp. Adobo

½ tbsp. Garlic powder

½ tbsp. Onion powder

2 cups of Chicken broth

1 pk of Sazon

3 tbsp. safrito  ( I have a video on this)

Cook in crockpot for 3 hours on high then let cool and shred the chicken.

Note: Spanish seasonings should be found in the Spanish aisle of store.

Chocolate Jello Pudding Pops

Hi guys here is a fun easy recipe that the kids will just love.  No fuse no mess and cheap to make.  You can use any brand pudding you like, and any flavor you would like.

I let these freeze over night so they would be really firm.  They were delicious.    I also have a video up on my channel for this as well Ruthycancook.




1 box of jello chocolate pudding mix
2 cups of milk (per box directions)
In mixing bowl add in the pudding mix and milk and stir until pudding is dissolved.
Then pour into pop molds.
Let freeze overnight.


Arroz and Gondules (red rice with pigeon peas)

Hi guys, this recipe is something that is made in my kitchen a lot.  We love Spanish food and it is easy to make.   Rice is always a good side dish and something even a main dish. this recipe is great for going along side of some Spanish fried pork chops which I have a video up on my channel.  That will be linked below.

I hope you give this a try and let me know what you think.



4 cups Goya medium grain rice

2 tbsp. oil

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 pk sazon

2 tsp. adobo

2 tsp. garlic powder

2 tsp. onion powder

3 tbsp. safrito

1 15oz can gondules (pigeon peas)



Add oil to pot and put heat on medium high heat. Let the oil heat up

Wash the rice until water runs clear or as clear as you can get it and set aside

Once oil is heated add the tomato sauce, sazon, adobo, garlic powder, onion powder, safrito and gondules then stir to combine and let simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add in the washed rice to pot and stir well.

Add in enough water to just cover the top of the rice.

Let this cook on medium high heat until the water has evaporated from the rice.

When water has evaporated, lower the heat down to low and cover with a lid. Stirring rice occasionally.

Let this cook for about 30 to 45 minutes or until rice is tender.

Serve with bean or just as is.

Eve’s Pasta Sauce

Hi guys, this recipe comes from my youngest daughter Eve.  She put this recipe together using what she had in her pantry and fridge.  Being in college she had become very creative in the kitchen.   As she tells me this recipe was inspired to due low funds and lack of room in fridge.  All of which a college student faces.  She sent this to me and told me I needed to put this on my website, so that is what I am doing.

This recipe did not take many ingredients and was very easy to make.  I am very pleased that my daughter isn’t just eating Ramen soups everyday,.  She is making exciting new recipes that are simple, exciting and delicious.  I hope you give this a try and let me know what you think.  This is very good and mom approved lol.


Ingredients for sauce

1 can of tomato sauce
1 medium onion
1/2 of minced garlic
1/2 cup of water
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning

Cook onions until translucent, add garlic and saute for another minute. Add can of tomato sauce. Add the water and bouillon cube. Once the cube is dissolved, add the Italian seasoning and cook for another 2 minutes. Then turn off heat.


Crock Pot Apple Sauce

Hi Guys, here is another great simple and easy recipe homemade apple sauce.  For this recipe you can choose to use any kind of apple I choose Macintosh apples for their sweetness.

This recipe did not take long to make and it came out amazing.  This is something that I will be making all the time for my family.  My apple sauce is red because I used the peels of the apple as well, but you can peel your apple before cooking them.  I also have a video up on this showing exactly what I did.   I hope you try this recipe and let me know what you think.




3 cups of apples
1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)


Cut apples into medium size pieces and place into crockpot along with the sugar and water.  If using cinnamon add it in at this time.  Give it a mix and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours or until apples are soft.
Once apples are soft you can use an emulsion blender or put into a blender and purée.
Store in airtight container and put in fridge.
