Description

Take smooth, mellow Monterey Jack, add bits of fiery jalapeno peppers, and you have Wisconsin Pepper Jack. This spicy combo brings excitement to your Mexican dishes, adds spark to your sandwiches, and livens up your cheese platters. David Jacks, a Scottish immigrant and dairy-owner in Monterey, California created Monterey Jack in the 1890s. Jacks followed a Swiss-method of cheesemaking, which is why Monterey Jack has its semi-soft, cracked texture. Wisconsin leads all other states in the production of Monterey Jack.
