Fancy Finger Foods with McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix

Gluten Free McCormick Recipe Mix

With football season in full swing, it’s time to whip out the finger foods. Luckily, recipe creation is a bit easier with new gluten-free ingredients popping up. McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix recently released new spice packets that not only make everyday life easier when it comes to dinner prep, but party food, too!

I have come up with three fun recipes with a bit more class than what you usually see in the lineup.

Nacho Bites

No more boring bags of chips. Step your game up with these nacho bites.


  • Gluten-free corn tortillas
  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix – Taco Seasoning Mix
  • Refried beans
  • Onion, finely chopped
  • Tomato
  • Mexican cheese
  • Sour cream


Brown your ground beef or turkey and add the McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix, according to the packet instructions.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the gluten-free corn tortillas in 1/8ths.

Assemble your nacho ingredients in a mini-muffin tin according to the below pictures. Tortilla + cheese + tortilla + refried beans.

After you have your base, pile on the taco meat seasoned with the McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix. Top with cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes. Plate the nacho bites and garnish with sour cream, cheese, onion, and tomato.

Chili Bites

No spoon necessary with these bite-size nuggets of gluten-free chili!


  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix – Chili Seasoning Mix
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • Gluten-Free Bisquick
  • 1 Cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper, finely chopped
  • Choice of Cheese
  • Green onion for garnish


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix up 2 cups of Gluten-Free Bisquick according to the box’s instructions.

Place 1 tsp. of Bisquick in muffin pan, using thumb to form a depression in the dough. Bake Bisquick for 12 minutes.

While the biscuits are in the oven, sautée the green pepper and onion, then brown your ground beef or turkey.

Once meat is browned, add the McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix Chili Seasoning packet, drained diced tomatoes, and ½ Cup water. Bring to a boil and let simmer, according to the packet’s instructions.

Once biscuits are out of the oven, place a Tbsp. of chili meat into each muffin space, topping the biscuit. Sprinkle cheese on top.

Broil for 1 minute.

Let cool, and then take bites out of the pan and plate for a delicious, finger friendly part app!

Fancy Meatballs

You won’t have to worry about any saucy spills with these party-friendly skewered meatballs.


  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup gluten-free breadcrumbs (Glutino)
  • McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix – Brown Gravy Mix
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder with parsley
  • Salt and pepper


Mix the ground beef or turkey with the egg, breadcrumbs, onion powder and garlic powder.

Form meatballs and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

While meatballs are in the oven, mix up the McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mix per the packet’s instructions.

Combine the gluten-free gravy with the meatballs.

Let meatballs cool. Place on skewers with a cute little mozzarella pearl and serve in small cups at the party so guests can grab and go!
