Looming Avocado Shortage? Eat These Recipes Now!

Avocado toast and eggs. Fish tacos topped with avocado. Egg salad with mashed avocado. Avocado BLT with turkey...

Experts suggest that if the border with Mexico – the world's largest avocado producer – is closed, we'd have about a three week supply before we run out of imported avocados.

And with domestic crops likely more than a month from harvest, stores have already seen a 30%+ increase in avocado prices since Trump made his threats known, the largest increase in nearly a decade.

In the meantime, here's a handy guide to All the Avocado Recipes to Make and Eat Right Now. – Dan Taylor
