Shish kabobs feature chunks of various meats, vegetables and sometimes even fruit skewered on wooden sticks and grilled. One of the most common shish kabob vegetables is the bell pepper. Any color bell pepper can be used to make shish kabobs, but no matter which color you choose you should cut them in a shape that allows even cooking and enough room on the skewer for the other ingredients.

Set a bell pepper on a cutting board, and cut a circle around the stem. Pull the stem straight up to remove the core that contains all the seeds. Rinse out remaining seeds with water.

Cut the bell pepper into 1-inch-wide strips.

Cut the strips into squares that are 1 inch by 1 inch. Skewer the pepper pieces onto your kabobs immediately.
