Does anyone remember those firecracker saltines? I love those. I didn't have any crackers on hand, but as luck would have it - my garden is exploding with Swiss Chard again this year. So I figure if you can make baked kale chips - why not Swiss Chard?

I combine the two and what a great combination! The Swiss Chard has a great flavor baked and when combined with the spicy ranch flavor it's a snack that will be a keeper!

Ingredients

2 large
swiss chard bunches, cleaned, dried, stemmed, and torn into large pieces
2 tsp
vegetable oil
1 to 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper to taste
2 to 3 teaspoons ranch dressing mix - powder seasoning

PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES

Step-By-Step

1In a large mixing bowl combine chard and oil. Stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes, and ranch dressing mix. Stir until well coated.
2Place chard on baking sheets covered with parchment paper - single layer.
3Place in oven and watch CLOSELY - you don't want them to burn. The outer chips will cook quicker than the ones in the center. Remove the chips with they are crispy.
4You can store leftover (if there are any) in airtight containers.

Enjoy!
