I got some beautiful curly kale at the farmers' market this weekend and decided to make some kale chips.
I really love kale chips. Part of the reason is that they are super simple to make. It takes longer to wash the greens then it does to prepare the chips. One of the other reasons I love these chips is because of all of the different types of flavors you can choose to pair with them.
I decided to use chipotle pepper with this batch of kale chips and was pretty happy with how they turned out.
Chipotle Kale Chips:
1 bunch of kale, cleaned and removed from the stalk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Rip the kale leaves into pieces and put them in a bowl with the olive oil, chipotle powder, and salt. Toss the kale to make sure that all of the leaves are covered with the oil and the spices.
Place the kale leaves on a baking sheet, making sure they don't overlap and bake for 20 minutes of until the leaves are crispy.
