These Clean Eating Jalapeno Kale Chips are another healthy snack alternative for you using a kale and jalapeno combination.
All my ideas for kale chips come from combining plain kale chips with one of my homemade dressings.
Making your own homemade snacks are so much healthier than buying highly processed store-bought snacks.
Here’s the ingredients for a popular store-bought jalapeno chip:
