    Lunch menu for a crowd.....Help!

    I've been asked to cater a lunch for some women next Saturday, approximately 16-18 of them (a friend of mine who knows I cook asked/begged me to do this as they are on a limited budget at their church). Anyone have any ideas? It needs to be cheap, but still yummy. Please help!

    chipotle turkey wraps

    I made this recipe from Epicurious for a baby shower and everyone raved about the sandwiches. The chipotle dressing was really tasty.

    TURKEY WRAPS WITH CHIPOTLE MAYONNAISE


    Look for chipotle chilies in adobo sauce in the Latin American foods section of the market. Serve the wraps with purchased salsa and an avocado, grapefruit and red onion salad with oil and vinegar dressing. Complete the menu with chocolate wafer cookies and coffee ice cream.
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    1 green onion, minced
    1 tablespoon minced canned chipotle chilies in adobo
    1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
    2 10-inch-diameter flour tortillas (plain or flavored)
    8 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey
    2 romaine lettuce leaves, center rib cut away


    Combine mayonnaise, cilantro, green onion, chipotle chilies and lime juice in small bowl; stir to blend. Season chipotle mayonnaise with salt. Arrange tortillas on work surface. Spread each with half of mayonnaise; top with turkey and lettuce. Roll up tortillas tightly, enclosing filling. Cut each wrap in half.

    Makes 2 servings; can be doubled.

    You could do 2 or 3 kinds of soup and then have salad and bread.

    Some kind of pasta casserole, bread and salad wouldn't be too expensive, and easy to prepare in advance.

    And doesn't the Texas Sheet Cake serve gangs of people? It's gotten great reviews.
