Corn Chips & Guacamole
One of my favorite raw food recipes for an after work treat has always been chips and guacamole. Trying to be healthier, I switched to blue corn chips with flax. Maybe a little healthier than some of the others, but still full of salt, with the nutrients baked right out of them. More empty calories. So, the challenge was to create a raw food recipe for chips that worked with my chunky guacamole and satisfied my salty, crunchy tooth. The answer to the challenge is raw corn chips!
Raw Corn Chips
- 3 cups corn
- 1/4 onion
- 1/2 tablespoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- a pinch or two of celtic sea salt
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Spread on a teflex sheet on dehydrator tray. Score the mixture before you start to dehydrate.
- Dehydrate 12 hours at 115%, flip and dehydrate until fully dry and crisp. Break apart at score lines. Makes one sheet.
- 2 avocados, mashed
- 1 medium purple onion, diced
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1 lime, juice from
- 1/2 small hot pepper, finely diced
- pinch of celtic sea salt
- Mix ingredients together. This makes a very chunky guacamole, which I like. Enjoy with the corn chips!

Looks delish. I love guacamole. However, 95 percent of corn is genetically modified which is not healthy. I’m experimenting with perfecting a raw crunchy suitable substitute. I also sometimes add a little raw hemp protein powder to my guacamole to make it even more nutritional. Love your recipe ideas..helps keep me going when I lack inspiration.

I don’t have a dehydrator as of yet, but even drying these in a regular oven on the lowest temp would certainly be better than “chips in a bag.” I’m going to try this recipe even though it won’t be considered raw. I hope to purchase a dehydrator soon–just trying to figure out there I’m going to store all of my new gadgets :-/…….10-cup food processor, vitamix, juicer, dehydrator??

Hi, Scotty, That certainly is an idea but since Rawmazing is not 100% raw, it might cause some problems here… 🙂
