I think Sriracha guys should officially make me their brand ambassador for using sriracha in so many of my recipes. We are spice lovers. Period. According to clinical research, higher body temperatures boosts your metabolic rate and eating spicy foods makes your body temperature rise. Remember wiping that sweat off your forehead when you accidentally bit on a piece of jalapeño. And how long can you eat that bland salad??!!
We all know that Kale is the king of superfoods and has a million health benefits. But, Kale is also difficult to consume if not prepared in a way that can please our taste buds. So, with my usual habit of adding weird ingredients to regular foods in an attempt to create something new, I came up with Sriracha Kale chips. AND I AM NOT GOING BACK TO THE REGULAR BLAND CHIPS ANYMORE. It tastes absolute heaven!
Scroll all the way to the bottom to see my handy dandy printable recipe for Spicy Sriracha Kale Chips.
Here’s the printable recipe for low-carb, gluten free, easy to make snack – Spicy Sriracha Kale Chips
- - Kale, washed and stem removed
- - Sea Salt
- - Non-Stick cooking spray
- - Olive oil
- - McCormick Sriracha Seasoning or any other brand
- 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- 2. With a knife carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale, either with a salad spinner or let it air dry for few hours before cooking.
- 3. Spray non-stick cooking spray on the baking tray. I have tried using parchment paper but I find that it bakes better and crispier on the baking tray.
- 4. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and sriracha seasoning.
- 5. Bake 15 minutes until the edges brown but are not burnt.
- 6. Check the oven to see if all the chips are crisp, if not try to bake for 3-4 more minutes. You can also leave them in the oven for 15-20 more minutes to make it nice and crispy.
- Dry seasoning ALWAYS works better than sriracha hot sauce. But, you can try mixing half a teaspoon of sriracha sauce with olive oil and drizzle on Kale, it's not that bad either.
