Dear Chef Rouler,
I am helping to plan a Mexican-themed party for 8-10 people and would like to have make your own tacos as part of the celebration. What recommendations do you have on quantities of ingredients, etc.? There will be excessive alcohol consumption at said party, so more food is better…
Dear Senorita Katie,
Tacos, Hard Soft small 6″ for both
figure 2-4 per person. ( what is your gender mix?) 10 x 4 = 40
Meat no more than 2 oz per taco 10 x 4 x 2 = 80 oz or 5 #, 2 # chicken, 3 # Gr Beef
Pre cook and season.
Cheese: 1- 1-1/2 oz per taco 40 -60 oz 3-4# If you can find Queso Blanco for crumbling it would be good.
Otherwise Sharp Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Jack, Colby/ Jack
Black Beans, 2 cans = 32 oz or Refried Beans 2 cans or mix/match
Tomato, lettuce, onions, red/green peppers 1 oz total 40 oz or about a #1 each
Jalapeños, Black Olive slices, Salsa med + Hot, Tortilla Chips, Queso Dip. Sour Cream. Hot Sauce and of course Guacomole !!
Lots of napkins
Margarita 1- 12oz can of Limeade
12 oz ( fill can) of Tequila
6 oz (half can) Triple Sec
Stir, fill pitcher with crushed ice
OR pour into blender and add ice to top, Liquify
Makes one pitcher of drinks or about 6- 8 oz cocktails.
One drink an hour plus one drink to start party = 10 + ( 10 x # hours) = total drinks divide by 6 = total cans of Limeade.
