Chipotle Kale Chips

Just when I thought raw cheezy kale chips couldn't get any better, I made a batch with chipotle peppers. Oh. My. God.

1 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2-4 dried chipotle peppers (soaked to soften), chopped & seeds removed
2-3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
Juice of 1 lemon
salt to taste
1 whole bunch of curly kale, washed/de-stemmed/torn into pieces

Place all the ingredients (except for the kale) into your food processor like so:

Blend for a few minuted until smooth (you might need a couple teaspoons of water to get it going):

Put the kale into a big bowl or pot:

Add the cheezy chipotle mixture to the kale and work it around with your hands to coat evenly:

Spread the yummy kale bits onto a parchment paper-lined oven rack (or into a fancy dehydrator):

Dehydrate them in the oven (on the lowest possible setting). After a couple hours, flip them over and then let them dehydrate overnight or until crispy.

So good!!
