Recipe Directions

In a blender, combine the fresh corn, bell pepper, onion, lime juice, and hot peppers. Blend until smooth. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground flax, sunflower seed, purple corn, salt, and spices. Add the blended corn to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Using a spatula, spread the mixture thinly onto Teflex or parchment paper -lined dehydrator trays. (If you have a 14 X 14 inch dehydrator, use three trays, with one and one-third cup of the mixture on each. If you have a 12 X 12 inch dehydrator, use four trays, with one cup of the mixture on each.) Score the chips into triangles (or whatever) and sprinkle with a little more sea salt if you like. Dehydrate at 110 for 6-8 hours. Then flip the chips over and dehydrate on the mesh screen, overnight or until completely dry. Once the chips are dry, break them apart and go make some salsa!

These chips are better than any fried corn chips I’ve ever had. Not too spicy, and perfect for dipping salsa or guacamole. The recipe is based on the corn chip recipe from “Raw Food, Real World”. I’ve added the purple corn and changed a few other things. You can find purple corn kernels for sale on raw food websites, I know Naturalzing.com has them. It would probably be fine to omit them, as well.

Teflex sheets can be bought from the same online companies where you would buy your dehydrator. Parchment paper can be bought at any grocery store. I actually use parchment paper.

But you must use something! I can imagine it would make a big mess without a liner on the trays. Also, I think the ground flax seed is probably very important to get the right textured chips, it might not work very well without it.

Hi, I am new to using dehydrator and today is my first time. I choose these chips and the batter is delicious that I almost decided to just eat it and not dry them. I don't use flax seeds so I added some extra sunflower seeds.

Some questions are do you use sheets that have no holes in it? I bought an Excalibur with 4 trays and come with 4 sheets that have little holes in them. When I put the mix on them some of the mix comes through bottom. Is this the way you do it? I am thinkin I may have needed more sunflower dry mix to make it more dry but I guess after a few times I will get the hang of it.

I just reread the instructions and see you say use Teflex or parchment paper. Ugh! Where do you buy Teflex paper? Is parchment paper white? I think my Mom used to use it. Oh, I hope this doesn't make a mess since I didn't do that.
