Everyone knows that kale is remarkably good for you. But, here’s a lesser known fact, kale chips are incredibly addictive.
You know that old ad campaign for a certain potato chip company that says, “You can’t just eat one.”
That applies to these too.
They’re salty, spicy and full of flavor. And impossible to put down.
Find a show to marathon on Netflix and whip a batch of these up. You’ll love yourself.
Southwestern Kale Chips
1 bunch kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon hot smoked paprika
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried thyme
1 lime wedge
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Using your hands, toss the kale with the olive oil in a large bowl.
Spread the kale out in a single layer on parchment or a silicone baking mat in a rimmed cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the sheet around, and bake for another 3 minutes.
Mix the spices together in a small bowl, and scatter the mixture over the kale chips. Drizzle with lime juice.
Serve immediately or at room temperature.
