Directions For Kale Chips Recipe

Crazy Good Ranch Kale Chips RecipePreheat the oven to 275 degrees.

Thoroughly rinse and dry the kale leaves. Make certain that you really get the water off. You don’t want soggy kale chips!

Remove the middle rib from each kale leaf, and then cut it into slightly larger than bite-sized pieces. (The rib pieces are hard and chewy – nobody has time for that.)

Keep in mind that the kale leaves will shrink up with they are cooked so when you cut them bigger, they’ll still be bite-sized for the most part. 

Once you have them cut up, place the cut kale leaves into a large mixing bowl.
