Quick Meal Tips For Game Day Entertaining

(NAPSI)-If the gang is headed to your house to watch the game, chili is a great crowd-pleaser that's easy to make.

Cooking chili in a slow cooker is simple and it gets the host out of the kitchen and into the game. Just place a disposable liner in the cooker, add the ingredients, cover and set the controls. When the whistle blows, you have a meal your team will love. Slow cooker liners from Reynolds make cleanup a snap. Just toss the disposable liner when you're done--no scrubbing or soaking required.

Put assorted toppings such as sour cream, grated cheese, chopped onions and more in bowls before everyone arrives to serve with this hearty game day favorite:

Game Day Chili

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 3-7 hours

Serves: 8

1 Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner

1 pound lean ground beef

1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

2 cans (15 oz.) red kidney beans, undrained

2 packages (1.25 oz.) chili seasoning mix

1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce

1 can (10 oz.) diced tomatoes and green chilies

Cheese and sour cream (optional)

Open slow cooker liner and place it inside a 5- to 6½ -quart slow cooker bowl. Fit liner snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl; pull top of liner over rim of bowl. Brown ground beef, bell pepper and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink. Drain well. Place beef mixture into slow cooker liner. Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour over beef mixture; gently stir with wooden or plastic spoon to combine. Place lid on slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or on high for 3 to 3½ hours until heated through. Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape. Serve food directly from slow cooker liner. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside.

Cook's tip: Store your slow cooker liners in the cooker itself. That way, you'll have them when you need them.
