Doritos Flavored Kale Chips—All the Flavor, None of the Guilt!

We’ve all been there. Some days you just want to go home and eat a bag of chips. Well, I give you permission to chow down—on kale chips. Forget those packaged chips that cost $8 for four leaves. Ridiculous. Mine are crazy easy to make and they taste just like Nacho Cheese Doritos. But BETTER. FOR REAL! Guilt-free binging? Yes, please!

Nacho-Flavored Doritos Kale Chips


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast (available at Whole Foods and other health food stores)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 bunch kale, ripped from stem in chip sized pieces


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, nutritional yeast, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix until thoroughly combined, and then add the kale to the bowl. Toss the kale until it is evenly coated in the mixture, and then spread pieces on two parchment lined sheet pans.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until crisp, rotating halfway through cook time. Allow to cool and enjoy. Store in a paper bag to maintain crunch.

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
