  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 tbsp bacon fat, melted
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Preheat the oven to 375. Wash the Kale and dry thoroughly. Rip into 1 inch pieces, discarding the tough stems.
  • Spread out on a baking sheet with parchment paper covering it. Mix together the fat, sauce, and spices in a small dish, and pour over the chips.
  • Using your hands mix the sauces all over the kale, and then rearrange on the baking sheet so they are not overlapping each other too much.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake another 10. In the last 10, Watch your chips a bit more closely. The freshness of the kale can change the cooking time slightly, and you are looking for crispy and crunchy but not burnt kale!
  • Remove from oven and enjoy. I like to eat them immediately best, but they can be sealed in a container for a day or 2, although they will lose their crunch. Don’t worry, it’s EASY to eat an entire batch by yourself. I’ve done it many times.
