A derivative of Monterey Jack, Wisconsin Pepper Jack cheese is flecked with chopped chilies, typically green and red jalapeño peppers. Pepper Jack is often used in Mexican dishes such as quesadillas. It is also commonly served with bread and crackers.
Levels of “hot” vary. Has a zesty kick with the fresh flavor of the chilies. Overtones of the mellow and buttery flavor of Monterey Jack.
GOES WELL WITH
