I have never tried them, but I bought some spinach yesterday to try a recipe I found online for spinach chips, that you bake in the oven.

normally i dehydrate my own. I will sometimes buy them, but make sure they are dehydrated and not baked. the baked ones lose some of the nutrients.

Athena1966, that's how I've made them and they were yummy!

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

I made them once and loved them. But they were super small. I lightly sprayed olive oil and baked them in the oven. Did I make them correctly?

I make my own. I just wash the kale, rub it with a little olive oil/minced garlic, add a very small bit of salt and put it in the food dehydrator until the chips are crispy. I've never cooked them in the oven. My husband loves them and they go well with a sandwich and a piece of fruit for lunch.

They are easy to make and the taste is distinctive, but a good substitute.

I really want to try kale chips, but I am not sure if I dare make them myself. Maybe I will give it a try though!

Like them. Made them once, may revisit it one day, refuse to buy them. Easier to steam or sautee up for a snack.

We have lots of kale in our garden, but when I tried making homemade "chips" in the oven--not so great. NOT a "do again"!
I've not tried the store ones given the expense.

These aren't straight-up kale chips, but I'd happily endorse The Better Chip's Spinach & Kale tortilla chips. They definitely have a unique flavor, in a good way--it took me a chip or two for my taste buds to get accustomed to the taste, but then I was hooked. Their health stats are pretty good too.

I feel sad that you didn't like the kale chips. I love them and love making my own. My family will eat them up on me if I don't threaten them to leave me some.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

My husband threatened divorce if I ever made kale chips again, they were the most vile tasting things, ever. Made them 3 times, they tasted the way ashes leftover in an old ashtray SMELL, just putrid. The kale itself, I've had it in soups, they need to really be in there a lot, and the soup cuts some of their bad taste away. But I'll stick to spinach. Pesticides in kale might make it taste better, as far as I'm concerned, I'll never buy it again.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I make my own, too, although I'd rather just wilt a few handfuls of kale and keep it in the 'fridge to have handy...

I grow my own kale and make my own chips. There are lots of recipes for them on Pinterest.

Kale has increased a lot in popularity in the last couple of years. Because of the increased demand, a lot of kale is being grown with tons of pesticides--it is now one of the "dirty dozen" fruits and vegetables, so be careful where you buy it from and wash it well.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I'm hearing a lot about kale chips are they good? Do you buy them as chips or do you make them yourself?
