I love chips and the idea that Kale could actually become “chip like” left me utterly unconvinced.

That is, until I actually tried the kale baked (and of course added some chipotle powder-current obsession…)  I’m actually a little late to this idea (considering I’ve seen it everywhere around the internet int the past year.  However, if you haven’t tried it and you can get a hold of some delicious kale, try it!


I was blown away by how much I actually liked these!  I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to get more Kale from the csa just so I could make more.  Add these to the list of random “chips” that I like!
