Spicy Kale Chips

My current obsession with kale continues. The huge bunches of kale at the farmers market were just calling my name! They had so many different varieties to choose from, but I settled on this one:

... add a dash of paprika and red pepper flakes; bake it for 20 minutes and it turns into this:

Viola! Spicy, crunchy and delicious! If you are seriously addicted to potato chips, then try considering swapping out a bag of your chips for a bunch of kale!

Spicy Kale Chips
Yield: 3 Servings

1 Bunch of Kale, washed and dried
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt, to taste
1 Tbsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp. Paprika

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Remove tough stems from kale with a knife; cut leaves into big bite-size pieces. Place leaves in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil; toss until lightly coated. Line two baking sheets with foil and spread out the kale evenly on the sheets so that it does not overlap. Sprinkle with salt, red pepper flakes and paprika. Bake for 15 minutes; gently toss them for even baking; cook for 2-5 more minutes. These burn easily, so just keep an eye on them. Serve immediately.
