  • 1
    Place Reynolds™ Slow Cooker Liners inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.
  • 2
    Cut thin slice from stem end of each bell pepper to remove top of pepper. Remove seeds and membranes; rinse peppers.
  • 3
    In 10-inch skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, salt, cumin, cinnamon and red pepper. Stir in couscous. Divide beef mixture evenly among peppers.
  • 4
    Pour water into lined slow cooker; stand peppers upright in cooker.
  • 5
    Cover and cook on low heat setting 4 to 6 hours or until peppers are tender. Garnish with pine nuts and cilantro.

Expert Tips

  • Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and throw away for easy clean up.
  • Serve with flatbread and grape clusters.
  • Cumin offers a strongly fragrant and slightly smoky flavor.
