Why I Love This Recipe

Requires a dehydrator. Makes 4-6 cups of chips. Great with salsa or guacamole. Add more chili pepper for more heat.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups whole raw cashews
6 ears fresh corn
2 cups ground golden flaxseeds (brown flaxseeds can be substituted)
3 cloves garlic
1 cup parsley leaves
1 cup cilantro leaves
1 Tbsp lime zest
1/2 cup lime juice
1 Tbsp dried chili pepper
1 Tbsp ground coriander seeds
1-2 tsp sea salt


Soak cashews in 4 cups water for 1-2 hours.

Drain and rinse.

Cut the corn from the cob.

Grind the flaxseeds in a coffee mill or blender.

Grind the cashews, corn, garlic, parsley, and cilantro in a blender or food processor, adding a little water as necessary to blend smooth.

In a bowl, mix lime zest, lime juice, chili pepper, coriander seeds, and sea salt thoroughly into mixture.

Spread the mixture thinly on nonstick sheets to the edges of the dehydrator trays.

Use clean, wet hands or a rubber spatula for easy spreading.

Dehydrate at 108 degrees for 12-20 hours or until almost dry.

Peel off the nonstick sheets.

Cut into triangles, squares, or rectangles.

Return to the dehydrator without the nonstick sheets for a few hours or until crispy.

Store in resealable bags in a cool dry place, in the refrigerator, or the freezer.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I don't remember if I first got this recipe from this site, but I must comment that these chips taste AWESOME! The ability to spice them up anyway you wish adds a really nice flexibility, too. I can get my "live" corn chips to crunch as well as the baked/fried ones do - very satisfying in the sensory sense, as well.
