Steak & Potato Kebabs with Creamy Cilantro Sauce

By Logo inline

Steak kebabs get a Southwestern spin with poblano peppers and a creamy sauce spiked with cilantro, chile powder, cumin and vinegar. The potatoes are partially cooked in the microwave before putting them on the grill so they’re done at the same time as faster-cooking steak, peppers and onions. Serve with: Green salad and Spanish rice.

I love recipes like this, but is there a good substitute for peppers. I can't eat peppers of any kind.
