Feeding a large group takes some calculating to make the right amount of food. This guide is about making chili for a large group.
I need a recipe for chili to feed 50. I am going to use this in a soup kitchen so must watch costs.
I did a lot of cooking of soups and chili as a volunteer. My favorite source of recipes was the Food.com site. In the place where the recipe indicates the number of servings, it is possible to scale up to the number you are attempting to serve and it will automatically give you the quantities. If you have a Cash and Carry store, it is possible to buy in large quantities at a good price and it's much easier than opening many small cans. Good luck!
Allrecipes.com has great recipes submitted by regular people and you can adjust the number of servings.
Cut this in half.

3 tbsp. cumin
1 (#10) can ketchup
1 lb. onions, minced
1 tbsp. black pepper
2 (#10) cans tomato juice

Brown ground beef in large kettle; add onions. Cook until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors and bring to a serving temperature.

This is a guide about setting up a chili bar. A chili bar is a tasty addition to the menu for your next party or family get together
Take 1 - 1/2 lb. of hamburger, regular or deer burger makes it good also. Sprinkle some salt into a skillet or iron dutch oven skillet if you have one, brown with 1 large onion or minced ones from a bottle. After browning, add 2-3 cans of tomato soup right out of the can, then add 2-3 cans of red kidney beans, then add a half package of regular taco mix (they are like 3 packages for 1.00). If you like it real spicy, then add the full package. Add water till it's as thick as you want. Simmer for about 20 minutes, serve or sometimes I make a double batch and eat 1 and freeze the other. It keeps great in the freezer. Makes enough for 6 - 8 people.
