Fajitas for a crowd. Help

Planning a derby party for around 50 people. Fajitas is on the menu. I was going to go to sams and get the 3 lb packs of marinated skirt. going to do 21 lbs. How many bellpeppers and onions do I need? Thinking 100 small tortillas. What am I missing? On the grill? Or big black iron skillet? Thanks

this. one pepper and one onion can make about 6 fajitas. plus you have those who don't like onions. question is, how are you going to cook all those veggies?

I was thinking I would sautee all of the veggies, and grill the skirt. Whatcha think?

I'd sauté the veggies(onions, bell and jap peppers, and tomatoes) with oil and seasoning, grill the skirt med rare, slice it, mix, and serve. Avocado and cilantro to go with it.

Lightly sauté the veggies keeping them semi firm and hold them in a chafing dish. Nothing kills fajitas more for me then mushy onions & peppers.

You will need more than 100 tortillas. Probably 150

You probably already know this but make sure you slice the skirt against the grain.

I make fajitas pretty frequently. I usually sauté the chicken/steak in a skillet and a few minutes before they're done, I add red and green bell pepper and onion. Cook until veggies are as done as you like and that's it. Wife loves them and they're just as good warmed up the next day.

You should also check out the mexican grocery store on Florida, west of Airline, next to the Office Depot. My wife and I went a couple of weeks ago and picked up a ton of stuff and ate at the deli also. They have premeditated Fajita meat for ~$6 lb...

Oven roast the veggies with seasonings and marinade of fajita spices and olive oil. Use a disposible aluminum roasting pan.

If you sear a few of the steaks in a cast iron skillet and saute the peppers and onions in the juices...

I know nothing about this place but I would guess their fajitas will be 10x better than the premarinated stuff at Sam's...at least that's the way it is here.

I'm not in Baton Rouge, nor am I a regular on this board. But we've (friends) ordered pre-marinated fajitas from local Mexican stores/restaurants here in Metairie. We've never been disappointed.
