Sea Salt
Any of your other favorite seasonings (peppers, sesame seeds, etc)
Preheat the oven to 350 F or 175 C.  Start by placing the chopped and washed kale in a large bowl. Cover with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix until the kale is fully coated with the olive oil. Add any other seasoning or flavoring you desire. Spread Kale evenly on baking sheet(s) and place in oven. The chips should cook for around 15-20 minutes but really keep an eye on them and move or turn them if necessary. You can also add more olive oil and seasoning to the chips wherever you feel its needed
