1. Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Stir to blend well and set aside.

2. Combine steak pieces in a medium bowl with 2 tablespoons lime juice, chili powder, cinnamon, onion salt and 1/4 teaspoon cumin. Toss gently, yet thoroughly, to coat evenly. Thread equal amounts onto 10-inch skewers alternating beef and peppers.

3. Preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray, place skewers on pan and broil 4 inches from heat for 3 minutes. Turn and broil 2 minutes longer or until barely pink in center. Serve with sauce.

Fajitas on a stick! A sophisticated way to have fajitas. Serve with grilled (or boiled) corn on the cob and an avocado and tomato salad for easy sides.
