Coooorn Chips!

So our dehydrator was packed up some time in January.  We haven’t had a blender since some time in June. And we haven’t made a decent batch of corn chips since, oooooh, last October, or November.  Soooo sad! Well guess what? We finally bit the bullet and got a Vitamix!!! Yes indeedy! And it arrived yesterday! I am overwhelmingly happy with it. We made smoothies for lunch today and dh cranked it up zzzzzzzooooooooooommmmm!!! And it stopped! *blink* It has a heat sensor thingie in it, and it can tell when it’s getting too hot and it shuts it right down. Woot!  Well, woot for me anyway. Dh didn’t like that so much. 😛

So anyway, the whole reason behind this post. Youngest dd has been wanting coooorn chips ever since we stashed the poor dehydrator in a box way back in FL.  So we are at it again!


REAL corn chips. Recipe: we started with two cans of corn. Dump the water and all into the blender. Add about a cup, to a cup and a half of shredded cheese (remember when you’re dehydrating anything with cheese in it the oils come out, so you don’t want to over use it. But it does make the chips taste great!!!) Then we add a sprinkle of pepper, some sea salt, and some onion powder. You can pretty much flavor them to taste any way you would like. Leave out the salt if you’re on a restrictive diet. Or instead of pepper, use Tabasco, or chili powder, or garlic salt.  Just whatever you have around that you want a chip to taste like. Then I use a table spoon and dob the blended mix onto the sheets. I’ve gotten better at it now and can get between 16-20 chips on a tray now. 😛 Today we used a total of five cans of corn (yeah, I have a lot of vegies in cans, and corn is a staple side dish around here) and then adjusted everything else accordingly.

Tomorrow morning we’ll have chips for breakfast! ~the whole house cheers~ 😀

    do you just put them in the oven if you don’t have a dehydrator ….you got me interested now please tell me more thanks

      You could give it a try. The oven would have to be on low temp. I have my dehydrator set for 170 degrees F when I make these so if you can set your oven right around 200 F and keep an eye on them, I think they might be done in a couple of hours rather than the 8 hours I have them in the dehydrator. I think it would be worth a can of corn and a bit of cheese to find out at least.
