Kale Chips and a Packer Win!

by zesty on February 7, 2011 · 4 comments

Happy Monday to you!  Did you watch the Super Bowl game last night?  It was a really great game, very enjoyable, lot of action, good commercials and the team I was cheering for won!  Whooo Hooo go Packers.

Speaking of commercials though, Did everyone see the doritos commercial last night?  Oh my, when I saw this commercial I thought I might actually have peed my pants slightly it was so funny.  Have a look and tell me what your favorite commercial was if you were able to watch the game.

Now onto the food.  I have been seeing kale chips around the blog world for a while now and finally thought I should give them a try.  I have had kale before and enjoyed it, I love potato chips and pretty much anything that dips into ketchup so I thought what the heck – let’s give it a go.  Out side of a little prep work, these fellas are pretty easy to whip out as a snack, side dish or just by themselves.

I served them with a little spicy ketchup and some baked tilapia fillets crusted in multi grain breadcrumbs….. YUM


  • 1 bunch of Kale
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • 8 Dashes Hot sauce


  • Wash and rinse the kale really well.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Dry kale and ensure the leafs are not wet, as this will cause them to steam and not achieve the desired crunch
  • Place  them in the oven for 8-10 minutes ( until they are brown and crunchy on the edges.
  • Combine the ketchup, mayo and hot sauce together ( mix well )
  • Dip in your spicy ketchup creation.
  • ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: One positive thing to note with the kale chips.  I had put them in a little too early ahead of the fish and sweet potato fries being complete but they held their crisp texture and were delicious even if they were not hot hot.

If you have not already done so, I suggest you try kale chips this week.  They are really tasty and a fun treat to eat.  I am thinking I could even sneak them by zesty junior because of the fun crunch.  I will let you know how I get along with that one.  Have a great start to your week and I will touch base with you on Wednesday.

Oh and by the way, I forgot my camera last night for the super bowl party but the food was sensational as always as Zesty in laws.  Homemade salsa and nachos to start, some sauteed shrimp, grilled scampi, oven baked chicken wings with soy and ginger, slow cooked chipolte  pork ribs and beef ribs done in the smoker for 12 hours…. oh YES – you read that right.

Take care
