My little family loves nachos and we eat them for dinner every Friday night. When we discussed eating raw for an entire month...the kids first question was, "what about Nacho Friday?" I scoured the internet looking for good Raw Corn Chip recipes. I found a few, but this one looked the easiest and the best. I made just a couple of changes to the recipe and we were all delighted about how tasty they turned out.The only thing that wasn't completely raw on our Rawchos were the beans. I soaked some dry pinto beans for 24 hours changing the water every 8 hours. Then I turned the crock pot on low and let them slowly cook for about 16 hours. Finally, I drained the water and added raw ketchup, raw mustard, black strap molasses, honey, onion and seasonings to the beans and let them cook a little longer. The result, although not totally raw, was delicious. And much healthier than canned.I'll share that recipe soon.Anyway...enough blabbering, I present to you......


Corn Chips
6 cups Frozen Corn
1 red bell pepper
Juice of 2 limes
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon paprika
1 cup ground flax seeds
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup water

Combine all ingredients, one by one, in food processor and pulse until a paste is formed. Remove from processor and stir in the flax seeds. Spread onto teleflex sheets as thin as possible for crispy style chips. Dehydrate at 145 for 1 hour then 114 for 5-6 hours. Flip chips over, remove teflex sheets and finish dehydrating until dry.

Nacho Cheeze

1 1/2 cups raw cashews
1 red bell pepper
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
1 teaspoon mexican seasoning {or chili powder}
1 teaspoon sea salt

Place all ingredients in high powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more water if too thick. Add more cashews if too runny.

Raw Almond Ranch Dressing
1 cup raw almonds, soaked
2 cups water
1 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
2 soft dates, pitted
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons dill weed
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/8 cup finely chopped green onions {optional}

Blend almonds, water and oil together in high powered blender until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy.

Raw Toppings
Grape tomatoes
Green onions
Red Bell Pepper

Jalapenos etc..Any raw food toppings that you can dream up for Nachos...chop 'em up and sprinkle on top!

These are great! How do you make your raw Ketchup? We are loving going "raw" we've been going for 6 days now, it's great. My husband is having a hard time, but I feel so much better already. I think I'd like to be 75% raw all the time.
