I do have pretty good Idea about recipes, but not sure about quantities. So dear professionals please help me with the numbers.

Menu is very simple open taco bar for about 150 people adults and kids.

Here is quick run down:

Soft and/or hard shell tacos depends on availability
Ground meat
Shredded lettuce
Bell peppers (maybe, sliced or diced)
Red onions
Maybe some chili peppers
Spanish rice like
Some kind of beans, if I can find refried would be the best if not I’ll make this mixture: beans, read onion, garlic and salt all put thru food processor
Tortilla chips

Anything else? I’m open for any advice on menu and for sure need help with the numbers.
The even is kosher that is why there is no dairy products.
Charlie, I went back and did a search under "Mexican" threads & found your rice thread:

Mexican Rice

Do you recall if you started any threads around that time? Maybe you can find the quantities for the rest of the meal/menu. Just a thought.

Here's a link for recipes & quantities for cooking for a crowd:

Check out the Mexican Lasagna, Spanish Rice, etc.

There was no quantities there. That is why I'm writing everything down now. Thanks.

You are what you eat.
