I doubt they will let me. The event is put out by boys school, there are like 40 teenage boys living in the dorm, I would guess if there is anything left, providing it is good, they will have it for breakfast.

The easiest thing you can do is find a recipe for 10 people, and then increase it, exponentially. Figure on two tacos per person.

There are brands of soy cheese and soy sour cream....

Thank you to everybody who helped. Event went great. I had plenty of help some good some not so good, but in the end everybody were very happy.

I made 40 lbs of ground meat, which I think 30 lbs would have been just enough, and 3 full pans of (my version) of Spanish rice. About 12 lbs of uncooked rice. Strangely nobody ate any beans, even though I thought they were great, even I liked them and normally I do not eat beans. I think people were not sure what it was. One thing, just like last time, I had a helper with guacamole, and it got ruined, everybody ate anyway. It is amazing how much people like guacamole.
We only had hard corn tacos and I wish the organizers listen to me and got at least some soft tacos. Some people skip the tacos and ate meat with rice and veggies.
Anyway thank you again.

Charlie just found this thread.

Recently went to a buffet taco bar with soft flour tortillas. Iw was catered by a local Tex-Mex place. Seems to me the soft tortillas worked better than the preformed hard corn ones.

I think people probably put less meat in them. But there were large bowls of fillings. And beans (don't folks in MN know about frijoles?) that many folks put on their tacos.

They too had Spanish rice. And then there were tortilla chips and plenty of dip, That had the way of filling up the troops without them going back for more meat, etc.

Glad it all went so well. But I still do not understand no takers for the frijoles.

Take care.
