PartyFilter: What is the cheapest, easiest way to make tacos for 50 people? Should I make my own guacomole and salsa?

I read the taco recipes in this previous AskMe thread
. Some of them look too easy to mess up when cooking a lot at once, or don't indicate how much taco one person eats.
Googling found suggestions of everywhere from 10-40 lbs of meat (for 50 people). I'm guessing ~35 lbs, but I don't know enough about tacos to guess how much of the other stuff I should buy. How many pounds of cheese, vegetables, rice, beans, etc. do I need to buy at Costco tomorrow?
This is for my grandmother's 90th birthday party on Sunday. Any advice or words of warning are much appreciated. Thank you.
