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.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️

This photo was taken the day my mom brought me back to the US from Panama, where I was born. She had jet-black hair and a tan, whereas I was basically translucent, with white hair and big blue eyes. Security guards stopped her in the airport because they thought she was smuggling someone else’s baby out of the country. So, I guess it’s time for everyone to come clean. I was indeed stolen. I am actually a Norwegian prince. Where’s my 👑, Terri?!?! Where. Is. My. #%^*ing. 👑?!? 🤪 Happy Mother’s Day!!! I love you. Sorry I’m so weird. ❤️
