Raw Food Recipe – Kale Corn Chips w Chunky Guac

When I was at the farmer’s market last week, I stumbled upon a grocery reseller who had tons of avocados for an amazingly low price. No…definitely not grown in Minnesota, but a great deal, none the less. I bought a bag and brought them home…dreaming of raw corn chips and guacamole. Well, it just so happens, that I also found some huge bunches of kale that were grown here, just picked and also at a price I couldn’t refuse. I love kale chips. I love corn chips. It didn’t take much to figure out that there were some corn kale chips in my future!



Combined with a fast to assemble, chunky guacamole, this is a perfect dish for snacking, entertaining, or even a meal! The kale gives the corn chips an additional nutritional punch. Coarse chopping the avocado and tossing it together with the tomato, onion, a little lime juice and some salt and pepper, the guacamole comes together fast.

    Man these look so good! I am originally from San Diego so grew up around a lot of Mexican food. Since going raw I have had to find substitutes for my beloved Mexican fare. Thank you very much!

    How do you score them so perfectly?

      Practice. I use a large knife. But be careful not to score your non-stick sheet.

    Ok – mine was just old Green Giant stuff – I will try with good frozen organic one day because I love kale and corn chips so these should be good!!

    Sue, I have used frozen but it is very good, organic frozen. I wrote a post the other day about ingredients…being especially important in raw food because we are not doing the normal stuff we do to doctor up cooked food. 🙂

    I think it was the frozen corn because I didn’t even get a taste of corn. Probably best to use fresh.

    I’m not sure what I did wrong but these were quite tasteless and I added a lot more than a pinch of salt. Did you use fresh or frozen corn? Mine was frozen. I am disappointed because they look so good.

      These chips are not super spicy. I really enjoy the taste of the corn. You could add spices if you want but I prefer to keep them more pure so they don’t over power the guacamole.

    Some great additions to the guacamole salad would be cilantro (lots of it), 1/2 – 1 jalapeno and a minced garlic clove. We just had it last night. It is a Mexican dish called Guacamole Casero and I figured it out because it is what I always want to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant. You can leave the jalapeno out if you want. I substituted Ancho Grande pepper which is milder and it was really good. The jalapeno I put in last night was not very strong so it was great with it. The cilantro makes it along with the lime.
