Chipotle Kale Chips

Chipotle Kale Chips

Potato chips were something I really enjoyed in the past and I really liked the spicy ones, so it I have been having some fun playing around with a bunch of kale I recently purchased. These are so easy to make, but not as easy to keep from eating them all up before they are done in the dehydrator. I don’t have exact measurements for these, but it is easy enough to just wing it according to your own preferences.

garlic cloves
apple cider vinegar
honey
Costco’s No-Salt Seasoning

I made a sauce out of the last six ingredients. I poured the sauce over the kale pieces, which were in a large bowl and got to work massaging the sauce onto the kale. Then it went into the dehydrator at 115 degrees for about 4 to 6 hours. after about an hour, the kale softens up quite a bit, and even at that point is quite tasty to eat. However, they are technically done when they are crispy.

I had made a previous batch without the no-salt seasoning and chipotle and they were quite tasty, but I decided I wanted something with a bit of a kick to it and this combination definitely fit the bill. I will have to make sure that I always has some extra kale on hand.

Is there a snack food that you would love to indulge in if it was available in a healthier versions?

    • Thanks! Kale is a highly over-looked green. I remember when I first started buying it that the produce guy was quite amazed that people actually ate this stuff. As far as he was concerned, it was a garnish!
