New Recipe: Stacy-Style Kale Chips

Have you ever eaten kale chips?

Me either.

...until last night.  They are delish!  Made well, I promise you'll enjoy them.

I really wanted to title this post Gangnam Style Kale Chips, but thought I should refer to the real creator, Stacy soon-to-be-Aguilar.

However, the flavors do dance in your mouth.

Here's how to make these amazing little chippies:
You'll need: Kale (organic if possible), Olive Oil, S&P, Red pepper flakes (if you like spice!)
Also: Preheat oven to 400 degrees
One bunch of kale yields about 4 cups of chips

Start by cleaning your kale with cold water

Next cut kale into "chip" sized pieces

Make sure to remove stems

Lay kale onto baking sheet (I lined mine with parchment)

Lightly drizzle with olive oil (I use my Misto), sea salt,
cracked black pepper or red pepper flakes (Stacy-Style)

Place in preheated oven 

Bake for 10-15 minutes (watch them, or they will burn)
Enjoy!  These are great by themselves as a snack or pair with your fav healthy soup or sandwich.
Honestly, eating them feels a little like you are eating leaves, however, the crisp texture and pepper flavor will leave you a little bit addicted. :)
