We like chips but they are sooo high in calories, fats, not to mention transfats. We are always looking at substitutes with varying degrees of success. Baby Lady saw these and wanted to try them. So we did with a beautiful Chili Dog with an Oma Jalapeño Cheese Sausage on a Francesitos (Mexican Style French Rolls), with Super Bowl Chili-Texas Style, onions and a nice sharp cheddar cheese (Inasmuch as this dinner was a heart attack waiting to happen, we needed something healthy). Before I could post the recipe, we went on vacation (which was wonderful). I did, however, post a photo of the chips and dog on Facebook for our friends. Our friend Doug saw the photo and has been asking for the recipe for Kale Chips the entire time we were on vacation because of their low calorie count and health benefits. He also likes to poke me in the eye periodically. According to Doug, everybody but him has Kale Chips. So for our friend Doug, here is the recipe. They are really simple to make, have good flavor and a nice crunch to satisfy your crunchy craving.
- 1 Bunch of Kale
- Pam Spray
- Red Pepper Flakes
Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat baking sheet with Pam.
Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Place on paper towel and pat off all moisture. De-stem kale leaves and tear them into smaller, 2 inch pieces.
Prepare a baking sheet by spraying Pam on sheet and seasoning the pan with salt and pepper so as to transfer to the kale. Next, lay kale pieces flat on a baking sheet and spray lightly with Pam and season with salt and red pepper flakes.
Place baking pan in preheated oven.
Bake until edges turn brown but not burnt, roughly 10 – 15 minutes.
Serve & Enjoy!
