Meal Ideas for a Large Group

It has been awhile since I've talked about care group. If you're new here, our church has a ministry called Care Groups (a lot of churches similarly have small groups, community groups, etc.). Matt and I love this ministry dearly and have hosted and led a group since we got married in 2011. Every week, our group meets in our home to share a meal together and talk about what Jesus is doing in our lives. It is a huge blessing and encouragement to us.

We currently host 12 adults (and 5 kids under three) in our home, which isn't a huge group of people, but it's quite different than just cooking for our little family :). Below is the list of meals that we've had so far. For the most part, they are gluten-free and dairy-free (excluding toppings, etc.). 


Meal Ideas for a Large Group

Chili and cornbread
Chicken Taco Bar
Turkey Dinner
Baked Potato Bar
Holiday Appetizers
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup (tried a new recipe that I didn't care for but this one is my favorite)
Breakfast for Dinner
Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes
Beef Tacos (homemade taco seasoning)
Smoked Sausage, Spinach, & White Bean Soup

Do you prepare food for large groups very often? 
What are your go-to meals for a crowd?
We've made our way through this entire list, and I'm ready for some fresh ideas from you all!!
