Nacho Bar Fundraiser
We are hosting a fundraiser and having a Nacho Bar sale. Do you have amounts we should purchase for 50-100 people like you do with the Baked Potato Bar? It was very helpful.
Hi, Tess,
You need to give me additional info. For example, the simplest nacho is corn chips, canned nacho cheese sauce, and sliced canned jalapenos. Really good super nachos might include real tortilla chips, good beans, steak fajita or chili, shredded real cheddar, with guacamole, sour cream, red and green sauces, fresh chopped cilantro and jalapeno slices available as toppings. One would be suitable for a meal and command a much higher price than the other, which is just a snack. So what price range do you want to hit for the item and what is the intended service? Write back.
Thanks, the plans are regular (round) corn chips, topping choices we are offering are sliced jalapenos, cheese sauce, chili beans, diced tomato, sour cream, sliced olives and green onion (chives) We are going to charge $5 a plate and include a generic soda. In the past for the baked potato bar and breakfast burrito, we have sold around 60 tickets, but are expanding this sale to two seperate sites and hope to pick up and additonal 20 to 30 people.
(round) corn chips, 2-3 ounces

cheese sauce, 3 #10 cans for 80-100
chili beans, 1/ cup per person
diced tomato,
sour cream,
sliced olives
green onion (chives)
sliced jalapenos,

For all the rest, see this new page:

Assemble a sample plate, noticing/measuring how much you actually use, then use that table to figure your amounts to buy.

I was thinking I should do a sample plate to see how much. Thanks so much!
