These Spicy Air Fryer Kale Chips are healthy, low carb and easy to make.

Plus they are not to spicy, they just have a little kick to them that comes from the chili and cayenne pepper. 

They are made with just a few simple ingredients, that being of kale, olive oil, garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne and salt. 

They will have you rethinking your snack craving and having you eating healthier.

Don’t like spice, simply omit the cayenne. 

CAN YOU AIR FRY KALE CHIPS

Heck yes! And let me tell you they are so so so good. If you like potato chips, but want something healthy instead.

These air fryer kale chips may be your NEW thing. Because they are mine!

ARE AIR FRY KALE CHIPS

Depends on what your using to cook them, I use OLIVE OIL vs REGULAR cooking oil. And when making them this way, you really are using very little.

Then these chips are just simply seasoned with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. 

As you may know I have been on the fence for the past year about buying an air fryer.

Mainly because I do not eat a lot of deep fried foods and also because I could not fathom spending $200 plus for ONE.    

So recently when I came across the Gotham air fryer, that does the exact same thing as an air fryer. I knew that I had to try it! So I’m now starting a Air Fryer collection of recipes on this blog because I have fallen in love with this NEW kitchen tool.

HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER KALE CHIPS 

Making AIR FRY KALE CHIPS is easy, first you will need either a air fryer or a Gotham Air Crisper Tray. Which is what I use and will show you below.

  • Simple start by washing/rinsing the kale. Then on a large cutting board cut the bunch into bite sized pieces and toss into a large bowl.
  • Season with salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and chili powder. 
  • Toss in olive oil. 
  • Bake at 375 f for 30 minutes or until crispy.

SPREAD OUT AND AIR FRY FOR 30 MINUTES! Just like this, keeping in mind they will shrink down. Then you will want to allow them to cool so that they become extra crispy! 

  • If your using the Gotham Air Crisper Tray I would advise to turn your oven to Conventional bake, which will make the chips more crispy.
  • Otherwise, if your oven does not have that setting you can simply place the crisper on the middle rack. 

WHAT IS AIR FRYING?

Air frying is a healthy alternative to deep frying food. And most air fryers have been marketed in a way to make you think that this cooking technique is best for those who make a lot of those at home.  

Well I am here to tell you that you do not need to just be a deep fried food lover to want to use this cooking method. RATHER if you love to bake food, then this is also a great alternative. And in most cases is much healthier than traditional baking methods. 

Because air frying mimics deep fried foods but uses little to no oil. And if your cooking something fatty, the fat will drip away and off the food.

So you can enjoy all the same deep – fried or baked foods that we have all come to know and love again but in a healthy way.

Spicy Air Fryer Kale Chips

The air hot air is what cooks the food not the oil. If you have some frozen foods on hand, feel free to throw out any deep fryer you may have because the air fryer can now do the same job. 

But it is not only frozen food that can be cooked this way, pretty much any food you can think of can. 

This is my forth AIR FRYER recipe that I have shared on this blog. And I hope you like it!

WHAT MAKES KALE CRISPY?

The air flow that is create under and around the kale. The more dryer they become the more crispy they will become. 

CAN I USE ANY KIND OF AIR FRYER? 

YES!  Air fryers promise that you can get that deep fried texture without all the grease. 

If you have a table top Air Fryer all these recipes will work the same. Because Air Fryers all use the same type of cooking techniques. 

IS AIR FRYER KALE CHIPS HEALTHY? 

Yes, very. Since the hot air is doing all the frying, saving you from using oil. But also giving you a deep fried taste without all those trans fats. The food ends up crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.

If you have never used an air fryer, now is the best time to start. Because they are more affordable now than ever before. 

Plus if you use the Gotham Air Fryer it is super simple to clean, I am talking hard sticky food at the bottom of the tray just slides right off. No scrubbing at all is needed, it couldn’t be more simpular that this guys.

Another reason I like the Gotham Air Fryer is because it cooks more food than the typical table top Air Fryers. Because it has a lot of space on that large tray !
