Spicy Kale Chips

Spicy kale chips make a great side dish or a terrific healthy snack to satisfy your chip cravings. Turning the oven off halfway through the baking helps you achieve crispy chips without burning them. We hope you give these a try and experiment with seasoning combinations of your own.

    10. Serve warm or at room temperature.
