    Does anyone cook large amounts of Mexican food in a roaster oven for fiestas/parties???

    I have a big party coming up and would like to make some carnitas. I would also like to use my roaster oven to cook some of the following for parties

    Mexican rice
    mexican style shredded meat
    beans

    would love to hear about any other MEXICAN style food cooked in roaster oven.

    If anyone has recipes for the items listed above please post. I have no idea how cook in my roaster oven and will hopefully be using it for the first time for this weekend.

    Is there a section where i can get ideas? I have 2 large crockpots. I just opened my roaster i got a in nove. or dec. I need any type of large amount recipe for mexican food for when we have parties. Dh has a huge family.

    Today I made a 5 lb buttpork roast for pulled taqueria style tacos as a try out for dh party but I'd have to make enough for 60-70 people and i have no idea how many pounds i would need for the mini taqueria style tacos. anyone know?

    would love to know if anyone has any beef birra recipes, shredded beef main course for fiestas.

    Check out the crockpot crazy index - there's quite a lot of mexican ideas there. Also betty Crocker website has "crowd size" options
