I'm expecting about 65 or less for a baby shower..
We are cooking Chicken Thighs and Carne Asada which will be chopped up..how many pounds each?

Also we plan to make our own rice and beans (canned or dry) how much do you think I would need?

Thankyou in advance I'm going crazy trying to figure all this out..I just don't want to run out of meat but I don't want to over buy too much.

You only need about 16 pounds- 18 if the chicken is strips, sort of fajita style, and not chopped; 6 pounds each dried beans and raw rice; see the taco/potato bar page for help with toppings and trimmings, do 2/3 the amount for 100.

Remember this is a fiesta and don't go crazy...
