Really?? Culture thing again. That's the thing about DC. I've been finding out so much on the differences in US vs Aust culture, amongst others.

I have no clue how to proceed for cooking for a crowd. A quick google search turned up the following ( I am sure there are many more.)
The following is a website that may give you some insight on amounts.
Quantity Tex Mex and Fresh Salsa-- Ellen's Kitchen- Big Pots

The next one is about conversions.
Free Food Recipe Metric Conversion Tables and Measurements Charts

This one is about the #10 size can.
Online Conversion - # 10 can

I hope this will get you started. Good Luck!
I hope these links do not violate proper protocol here..
If so, I apologize.

Hi, Charlie. There are some Australians and New Zealanders on a mailing list I'm on, so I put some clocks with various times on my PC desktop. Right now, it's 10:48 a.m. on the East Coast of the U.S., so it's 9:48 a.m. Central Time where you are; it's 2:48 a.m. Thursday morning in Sydney, Australia. They're 10 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time in London, which is 6 hours ahead of me (7 ahead of you), so Australia is 17 hours ahead of you. Weird, huh?

Boy I hate to add to the confusion but how much meat you get out of a pound of raw hamburger is going to differ with what % fat your meat has. I use 90% lean so I don't lose much, and 7 tacos / pounds sounds about right. But if you go with a 75% lean you are going to lose more uhhhhh.... bulk?

Shutting up now.
