Directions

  • 1. Throw the corn and yellow pepper in the food processor. Process until almost smooth.
  • 2. Add the remaining ingredients and process in your food processor until nicely blended for cracker/chip type texture. Don't over-process.
  • 3. Spread onto two parchment-lined dehydrator sheets. Throw the mixture in your dehydrator.  (Do a whole sheet and then cut or snap them when they're partially dehydrated.)
  • 4. I usually dehydrate at 115 degrees for the first hour and then lower to 105 for the remaining time frame. Check them after four hours. If possible, flip them over and dehydrate for another four hours or so. Remember, dehydrating is an art and depends on lots of variables. So just check on 'em every once in a while.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw corn chip recipes are, of course, a necessity if you're going to be serving raw guacamole (delicious recipe for raw guac here)!

This raw corn chip recipe is simple enough to make, although you will require a food processor and a dehydrator (see my article with tips re: the appliances required for raw food recipes). You will need about 6 corn cobs to make 3 cups fresh corn kernels. (Feel free to halve the recipe if you prefer.)

Raw corn chips are delicious! Of course, I like to serve mine with the aforementioned guacamole, but, of course, you could serve them with anything, even just a slice of cucumber or tomato or on top of a salad. Chips are chips, I guess. You'll figure out what to do with them!

This recipe makes two dehydrator trays.

I like this raw corn chip recipe best when they're still a little bit moist and not totally dehydrated. Being able to bend them is nice. But if you're planning on storing this recipe for a long period of time you have to dehydrate them really well (totally dry, over-dried!) otherwise they'll go bad in storage.

Just one single question: I thought that we are not supposed to dehydrate to a higher temperature than 100 or 105°, because it'll "kill" all vitamins and stuff.
Love your work, thanks for sharing!

Hi Mau, I discuss this in greater detail in my course called Raw Dehydrating 101, but in short, if you just increase to higher temps for the first hour then lower down to 100 or 110 then the temp stays at raw temps

Hope this helps!

I can not find yellow pepper anywhere right now, but I can find red pepper. Would that work okay, or would it taste funny?

Hi, I am working my way through your recipes and having a great time! I just wanted to double check that the chilli powder measurement was 1tbs and not 1tsp? Thanks

Hi Hear Me Raw!

Yes, that is 1 tablespoon of chilli powder. But remember that chilli powder is not SPICY - (I am not talking about cayenne powder) so you should be good to go :)

The only chili powder I have ever run across is cayenne powder. Do you have a mix of your own you are using for this recipe?

Hi Bradley!

Nope, I just buy it in the spice section called "chilli powder" - it is kinda like a mexican flavor. Again, not spicy.

(Feel free to omit it from this recipe if you can't find it)

Hi Laura-Jane
I've been loving your recipes been following you online for the last month and just got your App. Can't wait to try your carrot cake and brownies :) I've been loving your salads!
Just a quick question about dehydrating... I'm a newbie and would love to try my hand at making some crispy treats... I'm not yet an owner of a dehydrator - would the oven on a low heat with the door ajar do the trick for now? Thanks so much!

Hi Carmen, so glad you are enjoying my app and recipes! Glad to have you on board. Re: dehydrating, this is kind of a disappointing answer but I feel strongly about it. It's best not to dehydrate until you get a dehydrator. (oven door ajar does NOT work. I've tried it!)

Best dehydrator is 9-tray excalibur, hands down. But... it is expensive! http://tinyurl.com/ah6o3qt

You can also get a Vegikiln - they are cheaper, white, not as "reputable" but they get the job done: http://tinyurl.com/avb59e3

You should get a 8-to-10-tray, and do not get a round dehydrator.

The good news is that there are many non-dehydrator recipes that will keep you going for now :)

Can't wait to try this recipe! I have an Excaliber and love it but I am curious why you say not to get a round dehydrator? Isn't it going to do a good job if it has a temperature control?
