Recipe 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.

Hi Leann, generally the round dehydrators don't circulate air in the same way and often won't dehydrate as well, also the shape can be inconvenient for wraps etc (since they are usually a ring / donut shape with a hole in the middle)

Hi Bayari, you could use more fresh corn instead of the pepper

I love your recipes thank you so much for the great content! I wanted to tell you though that the link above that says "see my article with tips re: the appliances required for raw food recipes) actually just takes you to your recipes index. That is what's happening to me anyway. Thanks again!

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 Bensmum, it will taste just fine with orange pepper, the only thing is that the chips will look more red than yellow. Other than that, you should be fine. Orange bell pepper would be fine too.

Note: do not use green bell pepper though. (too bitter)

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!

My mix was quite moist which made it difficult to work with. Would that be due to over processing? Also they definitely have a kick to them with one tablespoon of chilli powder! Still my batch worked and were very nice when eaten with guacamole :0)

Hi Nicole, could be.  They are quite moist, as I recall. But if you use parchment paper it shouldn't cause too much of a problem.

CarrieC, you can opt for organic (GMO free) frozen corn which is way better than canned.

Hi Em, bummer! Kinda hard to make corn chips without corn, but you can make a lot of other raw chips :) https://www.therawtarian.com/recipe-categories/dehydrated-raw-chips

Hi Laura-Jane
The recipe stipulates no canned corn, but if corn is out of season can we use the unsweetened canned variety at a pinch? or is there a particular reason that canned won't work in this recipe?
Thanks :-)

Hi Carrie! I have never made it with canned corn, but it will probably be okay - just make sure to drain very well. Also, canned corn is not technically raw, but if you get unsweetened canned corn (no added sugar or anything) then I think it's a reasonable substitution in winter.

Thanks Laura-Jane :-) It should be in season here but I haven't found any at my local grocer where I prefer to shop. I may try the regular market first before taking the canned option - fresh tastes so much better!

Fresh is best, but we do have to make the "better choice" and what is going to work for us. So sometimes some small tweaks and exceptions are in order :)

My chips are now delicious AND crunchy! What worked for me was to dry the chips at a lower temperature for a long long long long long time. (So to economize I need to plan to have other items to cycle through the dehydrater at the same time.). Taking these to a brunch and can't wait to show off!

I just ran these through my dehydrator overnight but using chia seeds, the ending result is fantastic! I nibbled on the corner of one every 3 hours or so throughout (except while I dreamt of them of course!) and I was really worried they we're going to be awful! It consistently had this nasty aftertaste that ruined the chip, I read that others experienced the same as their end result. Nonetheless I stayed faithful that if I just let them stay in there for longer than my patience could handle then it might be ok. It worked, Wonderfully!
Thank you for all of your delectable recipes, you've been a hell of an inspiration!
