Pepper Jack is a derivative of Monterey Jack, the original “American” cheese invented by Mexican Franciscan friars of Monterey, California. As the name suggests, the cheese is flavored with sweet peppers, rosemary, habanero chilies and garlic and spicy jalapeños for an extra kick.
This semi-soft, open textured cheese is spicy to taste yet leaves a delicate and buttery taste in the mouth. Pepper jack cheese can be used in omelets, macaroni and cheese, enchiladas, quesadillas, crackers or on hamburgers. The Cheesy Smoke House smokes pepper jack cheese to a strong apple or hickory wood smoke flavor and to a robust apple smoke level. Consider Apple Cider, hot Apple Cider, beer or your favorite beverage with our smoked Pepper Jack cheese.
