Notes

  • To garnish the chips you can sprinkle additional grated cheese.
  • Kale will wilt down a ton. It may look like you are adding a lot to the air fryer basket, but it will wilt. 
  • With my Cosori Air Fryer I did not have a problem with the kale flying around in the air fryer, but every air fryer brand is different. If you have an air fryer with a really loud motor, this may happen.To prevent it, place a trivet over the kale chips to keep them from flying around. If you have an air fryer grill basket that will work, too.
