RECIPE: Baked Kale Chips

Best Blogger Tips

Americans will consume 28 million pounds of potato chips on Super Bowl Sunday. That figure doesn't even count all the tortilla chips, typically covered in artificial flavorings and dipped in greasy dips.

Instead of choosing a processed potato chip or corn chip with chemical flavorings, make your own Baked Kale Chips. Kale lowers your risk five specific types of cancer, detoxifies your body, and decreases inflammation. 

My husband was afraid to try them at first.  Then, he ate some and thought they were delicious!

If you are making it for a crowd, I would definitely make two or more batches.

 First, I chopped the kale and removed any large stems.
I drizzled olive oil over the kale,
then sprinkled the salt and chili powder over it
and tossed the kale really well.
 Next, I spread the kale all over the parchment
and baked it in the oven for 10-20 min.
 I kept picking at it while it cooled!
So yummy!
