This is a high school grad party. It will a Mexican them buffet. And actually in my first post I said 100 people. I was not thinking of families and we could have over 200. I do have access to my home kitchen at the time. I still have not decided how to do the tortillas. The crockpot idea with them wrapped in cheesecloth sounds good but I will have to have any crockpots available for refill as with other methods.. I was just trying to take an easy way out,...
I am serving both hard and soft. The tortilla keepers do not look like they would hold very many. Do you have any idea how many they hold. We are talking 200-300 tortillas. I might just have to figure a way to warm some more after the first ones are getting low. So you think this is a better idea than a roaster? Small parties I just put heated tortillas in a towel.
Ok I have read many ways of doing this. However I am still unsure of how to do the tortillas. How can I keep warm tortillas for 100 people. Could I heat them in foil stacks and then put them in an electric roaster ? The corn tortillas I have baked and then kept warm in a roaster, but I have never tried the flour . Also would you use electric roasters for the beef and chicken or crockpots. I think roasters seem easier , but would it be overkill?
I have 50lbs of cooked seasoned taco beef and 30lbs of cooked fajita meat to thaw for a party on June 8. The meat is all in flattened 2-3lb packages. How long do you think it will take to thaw in the refridgerator?
Beans are home made with dry beans. And actually after you gave the idea of the coolers at first, I thought about smaller pans after I responded to you.
So it sounds like making everything totally before I leave is the general thought.
Thanks to both of you.
Just curious. I have always made my applecrisp the way my gran did. Today a friend of mine asked me if I had ever tried precooking my apples in a cornstarch mixture. She said it made for a more stable flavorfull applecrisp. She has not had mine. So what do you think? Does the cornstarch recipe make a thicker solid crisp?
