Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Make dinner hassle free with the easy cleanup of Reynolds®Slow Cooker Liners!


  • 3-1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow and/or red sweet pepper
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons bottled roasted garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream, half-and-half or light cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • Sliced green onions (optional)
  • Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner


Step 1

Line a 5 to 6-quart slow cooker with a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner. Open slow cooker liner and place it inside a slow cooker bowl. Fit liner snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl; pull top of liner over rim of bowl.

Step 2

Combine potatoes, sweet pepper, garlic and black pepper in the slow cooker. Pour broth over all.

Step 3

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8–10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4– 5 hours.

Step 4

Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape. Mash potatoes slightly with a potato masher. Stir in whipping cream, cheddar cheese and the 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions. If desired, top individual servings with additional sliced green onions.

Step 5

Do not lift or transport liner with food inside. Cool slow cooker completely, spoon out excess liquid, remove liner and toss.
