Healthy Corn Chip Recipe that tastes great!


About this video:

This video was inspired by David when he asked about a healthy snack alternative for the football season. It just so happened that I had been considering making this video but I always put off making the video until "next time."

Anyhow, I hope you all give it a try and tell me what you think. The recipe is very easy to make but the dehydration process is a long one.

What you need:

2 Cup fresh raw corn kernels
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 Tbs Onion powder
1 Tbs Garlic powder
1 Tsp Sea salt
1 Tsp Pepper
Juice from 1 lemon (or lime)

Put all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix until you get a good paste.

Spread paste onto a dehydration rack (with a sheet) and dehydrate @ 115 degrees for 1 hour.

Change heat to 105 degrees and dehydrate for 7-8 hours. Flip, cut (optional) and re dehydrate until crispy (possibly another 6-7 hours depending on how thin the corn mixture was placed on the racks.

mmmm...this looks very delicious! Will I be able to make something like this without a dehydrator? Maybe sundry the chips?

Jeremy, you just inspired me to try the best of both worlds: crunchy corn chips and smooth hummus dip :) Thanks for the tips.

Qi, I am sure that it can be done but seeing as cooked chickpeas contain so much more moisture in them than corn, I would guess that it would take a lot longer to dehydrate. You could soak them for a few hours and process them without cooking them but you will want to soak them long enough to soften the bean and remove any potential toxins. Then again, you could just use the chickpeas with some lemon, garlic and a few other seasonings to make a hummus bean dip in the blender and dip your corn chips into it! ;O)

Jeremy, I love chickpea chips. Do you think if I can substitute fresh corn kernels with cooked chickpeas?

Off the top of my head, I would guess 350 in the oven for 20 minutes. If that is not enough time I would just keep adding 10 minutes until they are good and crispy. This is just a guess though, i have never tried it before.

I like the taste of sunshine:) But I'll probably bake the chips...any suggestions on the temperature and time? I can't wait to try these out.

It is possible that baking them would work; I have never tried it though. Sun drying may also work but I think it would take too long to dehydrate the chips (like several days).

Thanks for sharing. I eat far too many corn chips to NOT make my own!

Hi DiabeticDaddy76 - Thank You for sharing this recipe, it looks like a real tasty football snack! If I dont have a dehydration rack do you have any suggestions? Also any suggestions on a diabetic friendly dip or some kind of salsa type recipe? Keep up the great work and as always - Be Well! Dave

It is possible that baking these chips would work. I have never tried it but I think it would work. As as as dips go, I would stick with the classics like guacamole, salsa, etc. It might also be fun to try a cheese dip with crumbled meat and melted cheese. I bet that it could be made in a crock-pot and kept warm that way...
