Back with an update from my kale chip adventures.

I tossed a mixing bowl full of washed & dried kale (actually it is a bag of already chopped kale) with this: Cashew Queso from Post Punk Kitchen. Seems like it is still Phase 1-appropriate [ETA except technically for a little bit of arrowroot powder]

I used ~2 Tablespoons or so; I could have gone heavier for even more flavor. Into the dehydrator at ~135°F for probably only about 4 hours (I have found that if you are going to devour the entire batch immediately you don't have to dry it for as long... if you plan to store it, it should be completely dry).

All I have to say is YUM! Spicy from the jalepeño and sweet from the bell pepper.

BTW, i froze the cashew queso and it appears to have survived just fine.
