Low-fat Kale Dip

This is a really easy recipe.  I made it in less than 15 mins!    I have been eating from a bag of kale for the past week and this is what I made from what was left.  It is a healthy alternative to many of the dips out there too.  If you made your own tortilla chips from tortillas then you could cut down on the sodium.
