Kale Chips

Someone recently asked for a recipe for Kale Chips. Trader Joe’s has some great ones in a bag, but they are crumbles. Here is a good looking recipe.

Southwestern Kale Chips


  • 1 bunch kale, rinse and thoroughly dry, remove center stem and discard
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar, or vinegar of choice


Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

Cut or tear kale leaves and into 1 1/2″ to 2″ inch pieces. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, except kale. Add kale pieces and toss to coat both sides. It’s easier to use your hands rather than a spoon.

Lay kale pieces individually on a large cookie sheet, turn the leaves over after 10 minutes. Bake until pieces are crispy, approximately 20 minutes.

Remove chips, spread on a paper towel and cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container or ziplock bag.
