Recipe: Nacho Cheese Kale Chips

 Nacho Cheese Dilemma

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for nacho chips.  There’s just something about the spicy, tangy flavor that makes you want to eat the whole bag!  But traditional chips are full of genetically modified corn, questionable vegetable oils, MSG, corn syrup solids, unpronounceable preservatives and cheez-with-a-Z. They also have absolutely zero nutritional value, which combined with the MSG leaves you feeling hungrier after you eat them than before you started.

Super-Kale to the Rescue

Here’s a fun solution to the nacho-cheese dilemma:  Nacho Cheese Kale Chips.  Kale is packed full of nutrients like calcium, vitamin K, and potassium. It bakes into a light, crispy chip that’s satisfying and fun to eat.  And, these nacho cheese kale chips do share one thing in common with many traditional chips:  There’s no actual cheese in them, so if you’re dairy-free you can eat them with impunity.
