How much would feed 5 people?

Today is my daughter's 4th birthday :) and I'm making a big pot of frijoles charros for her birthday dinner. It will be just the 2 of us tonight, and my parents and brother are visiting tomorrow. I bought a 2 lb. bag of pinto beans, 2 packages of bacon and 2 packages of hot dogs. Cook it all? Half?

  • I'd cook it all. Left over beans reheat well, and if you end up with way too much left over you can freeze some. If you don't want to deal with left overs then just cook one pound.
