How big of portions for a party?!

Question: How big of portions for a party?
I am having a party for my husband's job and need help determining portion sizes. We are doing a mexican themed dinner with fajitas, rice and beans. There are going to be about 18-20 adults. How many cups of rice and how many cups of beans should I make?

I doubt people are looking for Thanksgiving sized portions to get stuffed on. I know when I attend a party I don't completely pack my plate. Just need a general idea of how much to have on hand.

I am known as the queen of party's. I have years of experience. One thing I believe there, is no such thing as to much food. Always make sure that your guest get all the food they want , and if there is any left you can always freeze it or something.
