Crispy, Crunchy, Kale Chips in Two Flavors – Cheesy & Spicy

Nothing beats the satisfying snap of a chip, the saltiness, the crunch; it’s tantalizing just to think about, and you know what they say, “be careful your thoughts for they become your actions.“  Well, no sooner have you thought about something crunchy then you find yourself devouring a bag of something not-so-good for you.   That is until you have discovered the secret of all secrets, the holy grail of snacking…. the Kale Chip.  Or, as my sister Nathalia Sciotto of Creatively Conscious calls it, “Kale Crack”.  The name is aptly given, for you will quickly become addicted to eating this “oh-so-simple” to make treat.


Now I know what you are thinking, but fear not readers, they are…wait for it…. good for you!  Seriously.  The other fantastic thing about Kale Chips is they have so many possibilities.  You can make them sweet, savory, salty, spicy or cheesy!  I mean listen to this possibility~ Lime Chili Kale Chips…is your mouth watering?  Well it should be!

What makes this one of my favorite recipes to share is that many people have heard the good news of Kale Chips and have bought and devoured them, but those store bought chips, oh dear lord, are they pricey?! It seems strange considering a basic Kale Chip needs only kale, which is pretty darn cheap, olive oil, and salt; but it’s not unheard of to pay eight dollars for five ounces.  What is really insane about that price tag is how simple they are to make.  Let’s all be honest here: everything. I mean EVERYTHING, tastes better when it’s homemade, and this treat is so easy to make, it is just silly to buy it.   Let me put it like this; while you watch a thirty-minute sitcom you could make, bake and be eating these chips!

I know, I know! Shut up and let’s get to this recipe!  Here at MY Cooking Spot I am sharing my two favorites today: spicy and cheesy.
