I am doing an open house graduation party and it is going to be a taco bar. I have been using your charts in the taco bar and tex mex sites for ideas on quantities. The party is at 3:30 in the afternoon and they are guessing there will be 100 people.
The menu consists of:
Nacho cheese dip
layered taco dip
Churro chex mix
I am planning on the following quantities:
Taco Bar Graduation Party- 100
30 lbs ground beef- 15-20
10 lbs chicken-OK
15 lbs shredded cheese- 5-6 pounds plenty
8 heads lettuce- 8 pounds
240 oz sour cream- 200 ok
5 cans black olives- 3 quarts- #10 can
8 lbs rice- ok, will you add some mixed veg?
12 cans of ro-tel, are you using this as your salsa? 4 quarts
150 hard shells- 200
150 soft shells- ok
15 lbs of nacho chips
3 #10 cans nacho cheese- 9 quarts
30 lbs of refried beans- 15-18 pounds-
You can write back.
Now it's my turn to ask a favor of you.
Hello. I am struggling trying to figure out how much of each food item im gonna need for a graduation party for 200+ people?
Planning on serving:
Nacho cheese chips
And also unsure as to how many taco seasoning packets im going to need.
Erika, the taco/potato bar page has all these items in amounts for 100, you would just double! Button at the top of he man cook alk page.
Strongly suggest you add beans for the sake of both the tacos and nachos. About 3 #10 cans per 100, lots of recipes on this site.

|Wondering what to take into consideration for grad parties when guests have multiple parties to stop in at. Planning on approx100-120 people|
|Heather, it depends on how many parties, the menu, and whether you are first, last, or middle. If there are more than two parties, people eat more at the first, only stay about an hour at the middle ones, then longer at he last. In a situation of multiples, you may wan o theme specifically, such as a dessert bar or ice cream party, rather than a full meal. Can you tell me more about your situation?|
100 people how much to buy
The menu consists of
Sausage, peppers, onions
Taco Bar Graduation Party 100 people
This menu could use some tweaks. For 100 people, too much food, and too many choices, which increases cost and waste.
100 people how much to buy
Fruit tray- fruit tray page. With watermelon and strawberries below, about 1/2 the deluxe tray for 100 would do
Bake bean- please consider changing to a western style Ranch or borracho bean, or even refried- goes much better with both the taco meat and he Italian sausage. 3 gallons (4 #10 cans) for 100 or borracho beans this site. MAKE MEATLESS! You don' have any other entree for any non-meat eaers, and there will be some.
Macaroni Salad- pounds dry pasta plus addins, some recipes this site. Penne, rigatoni, or bowties hold better the regular macaroni
Strawberry Whole fresh?quart per 10-12
Pretzel - 6 pounds, some left
