ELLEN'S KITCHEN
Mexican Food

I am serving fajitas, enchiladas, rice, and refried beans for my daughters 16th birthday. I ordered 60 enchiladas from a local restaurant, as well as rice and refried beans. I am serving queso and quacamole as an appetizer. I am making the fajitas myself. How many pounds of fajitas do you suggest I make to go with the 60 enchiladas for a group of 40 people. )(50% kids_

Good question. 1 pound of raw meat per 4 persons.

However, I am concerned you will run out of enchiladas- I order 2 per person.

Thank You so much Ellen. That is what I was thinking, just wanted a second opinion

I didn't plan on more enchiladas since I was serving fajitas as well, so do you still feel like I should order 2 per person even with 50% of the 40 people being kids? Mostly elementary age?

OKAY if they are little kids. I was thinking they were teens-

How much cheese do i buy to make enchiladas for 1000 people? I will be making 2 enchiladas per person.
Thank you

Also, how much enchilada sauce would I need? I will be doing the Red one.

Frank, there are MANY different kinds of enchiladas, beginning with rolled vs. stacked, and if I were making this many, I would use the stacked enchilada recipe for 100 in the Basic Bargain Entrees section of Big Pots as my starting place for quantity. You need to specify, beef, cheese, veggie, or chicken? Red or green? what side dishes? for more specific guidance. And 3, not 2, is the usual serving for adult dinner around here...
