Hello Binnur, I live in Los Angeles, CA, what can I use in place of the cubanelle pepper? In the past I have used Anaheim Pepper....

Thank you.

Hello Maria,
The Anaheim pepper is a mild green chilli whereas the cubanelle pepper is sweet. So I am going to suggest that you use the green Bell pepper:)
Take care,
