## How many tacos will 4 lbs of meat make?

The “conservative” amount of ground beef in a typical taco is 2.5 ounces, but because of the other taco fillings we can estimate 2 ounces of beef for the average taco. So that being said, probably about 8 tacos per pound of ground beef.

## How many tacos do I need to feed 100 people?

For 100 people I would make sure you have enough shells so each person can make 4 tacos each. Women won’t eat as much as men and teens do but the extra per person is a good way to calculate this one. Normally for 100 shells they say you should cook 25 pounds of meat.

## How many tacos will 3 pounds of meat make?

Although the standard is 3 tacos per person, folks tend to be a bit generous when filling their own tacos so caterers calculate 2 tacos per person for taco bars. One pound (16 ounces) of 80/20 raw ground beef, pan browned and drained, will equal 12 ounces of cooked ground beef.
