Hosting a Super Bowl party next month? You may have to go without this staple dish, or at least come up with a substitute for February 3rd.

Thanks to a fuel shortage in Mexico, farmers aren’t able to get avocados to US markets in time for the Big Game. So far, only 27,000 tons of the fruit has been shipped, out of the expected 120,000 that is expected reach stores.

Is a Super Bowl soirée worth attending if there’s no guacamole? Your guests will have to decide.  Perhaps turn to queso or a Velveeta dip, says Eater, who points to an NPR report that notes there is a huge surplus of American cheese in the States.
