If there is one thing in life that I really think was my calling, it would be to host parties. I love the idea of planning events that bring people together for food and fun. And as much fun as I have when friends come over to my home, I also know how costly hosting and entertaining can become. There are some ways to cut your costs and feed a crowd on a budget. You won’t be able to buy the highest quality of meats but buy the best quality of ingredients that you can afford.
Here are my tips and tricks to feed a crowd on a budget:
Feeding a crowd does not have to turn into a financial burden. I took into consideration the above tips and created these Chipotle Bacon Ranch Chicken Tacos, which are perfect for a crowd! They use chicken thighs in the slow cooker to melt down the fat and turn into a flavorful base for my tacos. I used boneless chicken thighs but bone-in are always less expensive. Serving these tacos buffet style will allow people to eat as many or as few as they like. Served with a side of Mexican rice and chips with salsa will turn this entrée into the perfect party food!
