Heating up food

Hi Ellen. Thank you for the help getting the taco lunch for 400 together.

Questions: How long to heat up the refried beans (canned Rosarita beans with onion, garlic, peppers, tomatoes) and taco meat (already cooked and rinsed and I will add the seasonings) in the electric roasters? Will four hours be enough time? And the rice I will reheat in the full steamer pans in the oven, so how long for that too?

As always I thank you for your gracious help.

Karen

4 hours is plenty. Be sure you have an instant read thermometer and check the middle - you reach a temp of 165 in the middle, turn the roaster to 180. Stir these carefully.

The rice will take about an hour- have some water in the bottom, be sure it is covered very tightly, don't uncover.
