How to Feed a Crowd Affordably

What's an Easy, Cheap Way to Feed a Large Crowd?

Readers, myhousemd needs our help. She recently uploaded a serving question to the community. She asks: "What is the cheapest and easiest way to feed 100+ people? It is for a service event that I am organizing on my area."

Although we don't know what time of day the food is going to be served, I recommend that she do a giant taco salad with lettuce, beans, rice, shredded cheese, tomatoes, olives, and tortilla chips with a salsa-based dressing. It's hearty, healthy, and since there's no protein, affordable.

What do you think she should make? Share your ideas in the comments below!

Hmm. The salad and chili options sound delicious! I'll be looking into both of them. Thanks, guys!

When I made the Black bean vegetable soup we had no problems with people getting gassy or anything. We spent a good 4 hours together after we ate and nobody had any complaints. When you actually make the soup the amount of beans each person eats is not a large serving. Less then 1/4 of a cup.

I was going to say chili too. Or maybe a potato soup.

The last time we had a family reunion I made a Black Bean vegetable soup that I found on all recipes. All it has is black beans, corn, onion, stewed tomatoes, carrots and a few spices. You can also top it off with things like shredded cheese, sour cream, cilantro, etc. Very inexpensive, quick and easy.

I would do crockpots of chili with a fix-ins bar of chives, sour cream, cheese... Buy the ground beef in bulk quantities and add more beans as a cheap filler. You could also make pans of lasagna with a large garden salad as a side dish. Maybe even buy the cheap 99 cent loaf of French bread, slice down the middle, butter it up, garlic powder, salt & pepper it. Very cheap. My family did this for our HUGE family reunion. You could even do pulled pork BBQ sandwiches with coleslaw and cheap mac n cheese or beans.
