1 tablespoon olive oil
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ teaspoon sea salt

4 cups fresh sweet corn, off the cob

SPINACH/PEPPER MIXTURE Place ingredients in a plastic bag Ziploc bag and marinate for 1 hour.
NACHO CHEESE Blend ingredients until thick and creamy.
CORN TORTILLAS Chop corn and bell pepper in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
Take a spoon and spread the corn mixture on the teflex-lined dehydrator trays. You should have enough mixture for two or three trays.
Dehydrate at 110 degrees for about 5 hours.
Flip the teflex sheet over onto the tray and carefully pull away from tortillas.
Using a pizza cutter, score the tortilla in 3-inch strips (approximately 3 long strips) length-wise, then score every four inches across. You should have approximately 9 strips of rectangles.
Dehydrate for another 2 hours until tortilla is completely dry on both sides but still pliable.
ASSEMBLE TAQUITO Spread cheese on the end of one tortilla strip, spoon spinach/pepper mixture on top of cheese and roll tortilla tightly to prevent it from opening.
Secure with a toothpick, if necessary.
Put taquitos in dehydrator at 110 degrees for 8-12 hours or until they are crisp on the outside.
