Pepper Jack is Monterey Jack cheese with spicy peppers added to give the cheese a zesty flavor. Small pieces of peppers are added to the curds during production.
Pepper Jack is good with meats, especially beef. It also goes well on cheeseburgers, though sometimes the storebought factory stuff doesn't always melt well. It can be an alternative cheese in quesadillas. Pepper Jack is also great as a snack, often cut in cubes and served with crackers and/or melon.
Pepper Jack is sometimes called Jalepeño Jack.
Where to buy
