Holy guacamole. The future of our favourite green fruit may be standing on shaky ground, as the severe drought affecting California (where avocado growers produce over 80 percent of the USA's total crop) is propelling projections of huge avocado shortages. While our undying love for a bowl of guacamole and chips makes this news a bit alarming, there are plenty of ways to make a great party dip without this tropical gem. So, while it may not be time to take avocados off the menu just yet, we'll be adding five new dips to the rotation to help stave off the separation anxiety.
