25. Veggie Enchiladas with Black Beans and Kale
Forget salads or sautés. We bet you've never had kale in your enchiladas, but you'll want to make it a regular occurrence after trying this cumin-spiked recipe.
26. Crock-Pot Carnitas
Don't just drink your beer—use it to infuse your food! The scents of coriander, cumin, and chipotle will keep everyone coming back for more during commercials.
27. Meatball Subs
Consider cutting these cheesy, tomato-y handhelds in half to serve since they're high in calories, or toothpick extra meatballs for those who want to skip the bread.
28. Blackened Fish Tacos with Chipotle Dipping Sauce
The tilapia in this recipe provides a healthy, low-fat dose of protein. And, hello, smoky chipotle—does it get any better? Let Taco Tuesday came on a Sunday this week!
29. Spiced Avocado-Chocolate Cupcakes
Because no one should have to give up cupcakes in the name of health! These double-chocolate cakes use avocados to create super rich and moist texture and perhaps the smoothest icing ever.
30. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
There's no shame in using premade cookie dough when it's a party (let's face it, you kinda have a few things to do!). These ooey gooey gluten-free bites will disappear in seconds.
31. Chocolate Chip Blondie Bars
This sweet will help you meet your daily dose of dark chocolate, plus it uses chickpeas (trust us here: They add no flavor) to pack a one-two punch of heart-healthy goodness for a treat that clocks in at less than 100 calories with only 2.5g fat per serving.
32. Beer-Pretzel Caramels
Beer and pretzels are a match made in heaven, and when you combine them into one dessert, you get an addictive, distinctive flavor that will keep you reaching for more.

If you haven't tried this trick yet, do it! Luscious, chocolatey, and with a hint of cinnamon (and healthy monounsaturated fats to boot), you will want to lick the bowl.
34. Red Velvet Cheesecake
We've never seen (or even thought about) this duo before, but it's simply brilliant—and you gotta love that there's a chocolate crust to boot. It's super decadent, so watch how big you cut the slices.
35. Nutella Brownies
We think the name says enough on this one. But just in case: Nutella, espresso, chocolate chips. Now we've said enough.
36. Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
Forget melting chocolate. Whip together Greek yogurt, cocoa, and a few other ingredients, and you have an easy and delicious dessert. Let guests dip themselves, or pre-dip and chill the berries. (P.S. This recipe would also make a great Valentine's Day treat for that someone special!)
