Recipe Tips
  • Note
    If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, you can use a regular skillet instead. Just wrap the skillet handle with several layers of foil before using as directed. Or, you can use a cast-iron skillet.
  • Substitute
    Substitute fresh spinach for the kale.
  • How to Shred the Kale
    Kale can be purchased pre-shredded. Or, you can instead buy whole kale leaves and shred them yourself. Wash the kale, then remove and discard the tough center stems. Stack a few leaves together, roll up and cut crosswise into thin shreds. Repeat as needed to get the 4 cups shredded kale needed to prepare this cheesy dip.
