Forget chips and salsa! This recipe is perfect for any fiesta or afternoon snack and it's far more nutritious than your average bag of potato or tortilla chips. I added a touch of heat to these kale chips with a dash of chili powder and used sesame oil instead of olive oil for a savory taste you'll love all spring.
