  • Add 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil, 1 Teaspoon of salt, 1 Teaspoon of pepper, chopped yellow or sweet onion, and chopped garlic to your pan and put on med-high heat.
  • After about 2 minutes, lower heat to low so onions carmelize. Leave for about 7 minutes.
  • If you are adding kale, move your onions to the side of the pan off the heat and cook kale with a dash of olive oil and salt on high heat. Move the leaves around frequently, they will turn dark green and be done after about 3 minutes.

  • Add chopped chives on top and enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips.
