For Small Size Slow Cookers

  • Simply use half of the ingredients listed above

Step 1

Line a 5-quart slow cooker with a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner. In a large skillet, cook and stir ground beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with a wooden spoon, 6 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain and discard grease. Rinse cooked beef to remove any excess grease; drain. Sprinkle beef with taco seasoning, salt, and black pepper; add to slow cooker. Stir in the broth, black beans, sweet potatoes, red sweet peppers, onions, and garlic.

Step 2

Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. Stir in the lime juice.

Step 3

Serve food directly from lined slow cooker. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside. Serve topped with lime wedges, tomato, tortilla chips, and/or shredded cheese. Cool slow cooker completely; remove liner and discard.
