Costco/Chips & guac question

Need to buy enough tortilla chips & guac for 24 teens(seniors). There will be others supplying more of this & other foods for a total of 150 kids. My question is will the guac at Costco (organic, 3 pack 16 oz. each) be enough for 24? I am fairly certain their 5lb Las Fortunitas chips will be sufficient :)

  1. That works out to 1/4 C guac per kid. I don't eat guac so I can't comment on whether that seems appropriate... I just do the math... but if it were salsa, I would say get more.

    1. My experience is that young adults are like a swarm of locusts. It doesn't matter how much you put out, they'll eat it all. I think the 3-pack with the 5 lb bag of chips would be enough, not to satiate them, but to fulfill your obligation to provide chips and guac.

      1. re: ricepad

        This was my thinking...there will be brownies, fruits, mini sandwiches, etc.

        Thanks all for your replies.

      2. I guess it will depend on what the others bring. You may need to make a few calls.

          This site recommends a pint of dip for every ten guests, so theoretically you should have enough. But teen boys like their chips and dip…

          1. It sounds like for your situation it should be fine since others will be supplementing the meal as well.....
