Best Corn Chip Recipe EVER

I love corn chips!  As a child I love Fritos with dip, Frito pie, BBQ Fritos, Chili get the picture.  Luckily, being raw does not mean you have to live sans corn chips.

I've tried many corn chip recipes but this one - HANDS DOWN - is my all time favorite.  The sweetness of the corn really shines through.  I let these suckers dehydrate for a really long time because I like them as crisp as can be.  Serve them up with some fresh salsa, raw chili, or just crunch on them by themselves!

Corn Chips
4C Fresh Corn
1/2 ground flax seed
1C almond pulp
1/2 large yellow bell pepper
1/2C Vidalia onion
1/2t cumin
3/4t sea salt

Soak ground flax seeds in plenty of water for about a hour (let it get good and gooey).  Put all ingredients in a high speed blender and process until a pancake like batter forms (use water if you need to thin the batter a bit).  Pour onto Teflex sheets and spread to 1/8 of an inch.  Sprinkle with a little extra sea salt if desired.  Dehydrate for 12+ hours at 115 degrees.  Midway through the dehydration score the batter/chips into triangles so they will break apart easily once dehydration is complete.
