Servings: 4 servings
- 1 lb kale $3.98
- 3 tbsp lime juice $.33
- 2 tbsp maple syrup $.50
- 1 tsp chipotle powder $.10
- 1 tsp garlic powder $.05

Wash kale and remove the thickest stems. Leave larger pieces intact when possible. Place in a large bowl.
In a small dish, mix together the lime juice and maple syrup.
Pour the lime juice and maple syrup over the kale and toss to coat.
Spread out on lined dehydrator sheets or baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Sprinkle evenly with the spices and a bit of salt.
If using a dehydrator, dry at about 118 degrees F for 8-10 hours, or until crispy.
Alternatively, dry in an oven set at 170 degrees F with the door slightly ajar for 8-10 hours, or until crispy.
Gently remove from dehydrator trays or parchment. They will be brittle. Store any leftovers in a dry, air-tight container.
