Ellie Krieger's Cracked Pepper Potato Chips with Onion Dip

America’s favorite snack duo has its own holiday, and that day is today. Crunchy chips and creamy dip can be part of a healthy eating plan, but not all chips are created equal. Skip the store-bought stuff full preservatives and lots of sodium by making your own at home.

At only 60 calories per 2 cup serving, Ellie’s Smoky Kale Chips from Food Network Magazine take nothing more than kale, paprika, salt, olive oil and an oven. Pop the kale in for 15 minutes and this leafy green vegetable transforms into a crisp chip. Make sure to only cook until the edges are slightly brown — any longer and the chips take on a bitter taste.

Baked Cracked Pepper Potato Chips taste even better dipped in cool Onion Dip. Try Ellie’s version (pictured above) and cut calories by using Greek yogurt as the base for this creamy spread.

Try your hand at homemade Chili Tortilla Chips and salsa instead of opting for the restaurant version. The flavor of baked corn tortillas is kicked up a notch with chili powder and cayenne, and Emeril’s Classic Salsa also packs heat with minced jalapeno. Don’t forget the chopped cilantro for added Tex-Mex flavor.

Making hummus at home is as easy as turning on the food processor. Chickpeas, tahini and parsley come together in a Green Herb Hummus that’s light and refreshing. Serve with Ellie’s Spiced Pita Chips for a crunchy treat.
