Chili Spiced Kale Chips

kale chips oneI have found the ultimate healthy snack!

You can eat a whole bowl and it won’t make you gain weight. But if you do eat the whole bowl, it might give you a tummy ache and and some gas. So I would advise to only eat half the bowl. Not that I would know about eating a whole bowl of anything….ahem….cough.

Last week I saw these on Leslie’s blog, A Hungry Housewife.  I made them once and just loved them. They are almost as good as potato chips. No lie.

So I started experimenting with different flavors. First it was garlic and onion. Then it was Parmesan cheese. Now I am addicted to kale chips with chili powder. I just hope I don’t start turning green.

These chips can be made with any flavoring you like. I have even heard that they can be made with cinnamon and sugar for a sweet effect. That might be next on my list to try.

While my husband is watching the games with some Buffalo wings, I will be sitting next to him with a big bowl of kale chips. I’ll even offer to share.
