Kale chips

My aunt loves these healthy chips and now we do too. I’ve seen lots of recipes and finally had a chance to try one. There are several variations where you can add different flavors like teriyaki or parmesan. I kept this one simple – salt and pepper.

  • 1 bunch of kale, washed and patted dry
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cut the stems and any tough pieces from the kale leaves. Then cut or tear the kale leaves into one-inch pieces.

Coat the kale in olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Spread kale in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until the kale gets crispy. Keep an eye on the oven so the chips don’t burn.

Crunch on!

Turkey Crockpot Chili

Sheldon Cooper would say this isn’t really a chili recipe because it has beans, but thats what I’m going to call it anyway. Sorry Sheldon.

I love an easy crock pot recipe, especially a hearty warm one like this on a cold night.

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can beans (red kidney beans work well)
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 package frozen veggies (I like carrots, corn, green beans)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2-4 tsp chili powder depending on how spicy you like things
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Cook the turkey in a pan first. Then put the browned turkey and everything else in your crock pot. Cook on low for about 8 hours and dig in. Its good by itself or over rice.
