(100.3 Jack FM) - Chacho's is a restaurant in San Antonio, and they are facing a slight problem. They've run out of avocados.

They only use dark skin, pebbly Hass avocados from Mexico and California, and right now are currently experiencing a shortage. Though it's only temporary, Chacho's didn't want their customers to go completely without guacamole, so they devised a plan, reports My San Antonio.

For the time being, Chacho's is serving "mockamole," a guacamole-alternative made out of various green vegetables including broccoli and green peas.  Spices are also added to make a "pretty good tasting product" according to the restaurant.

Chacho's management confirmed they could have used frozen avocado pulp instead of crafting their own mockamole, but it tasted so "artificial" they "refused" to use it.

However, even though the restaurant rallied behind the fresher option, customers are still bummed about the "broccamole" concoction they've come up with as an alternative to their favorite avocado snack.

One Twitter user even considers the ingredients of the green paste to be a "war crime."

Luckily for Chacho's and guacamole fans, the restaurant expects to receive their normal shipment of avocados next week.
