Chipotle Kale Chips - Spicy! Kale chips are a great way to satisfy your snack tooth but also a great way to get a load of nutrients in at the same time. You will find that these get inhaled by everyone in your home. They may not even make it the full 8 hours in the dehydrator! It’s happened to me before. 

Kale is very high in Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium & iron. Talk about a nutrition powerhouse! These are best dehydrated but can be baked, but they crispen up much nicer in the dehydrator. Another option is setting your oven to the lowest temperature, propping the door open slightly and dehydrating them that way!

Beware! These are spicy!
