Fresh red and green jalapeños give Maple Leaf Pepper Jack a zesty bite, and true pepper flavor, balanced with sweet, buttery notes. Made in America’s cheese heartland, this pepper jack is a true Wisconsin original, perfect for melting over nachos, quesadillas, or a burger. It also makes a great snack when paired with Firehook Sea Salt Crackers and prosciutto cotto.

“This is hands-down the BEST Pepper Jack out there, one that’s beloved by the Murray’s Wholesale team, and some of NYC’s top chefs as well. It is our go-to snack, and works great on nachos, omelets, and sandwiches.”

  • Pepper Jack is a spicy take on a Monterey Jack, a cheese first developed by Franciscan monks in Monterey, California.
  • This rendition comes straight from the Maple Leaf Cheese Cooperation in Wisconsin.
  • The addition of peppers and spices gives it its signature kick.
  • During its 30 days of aging, Maple Leaf Pepper Jack is fine-tuned to evenly balance its sweet, buttery flavor with the crunchy heat of fresh red and green jalapeños.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
  • Maple Leaf Cheese Cooperative prides itself on a century-long history of cheese making.
  • It was founded in 1910 by a group of local cheesemakers looking to build a consistent market for their milk.
  • Drawing inspiration from Dutch recipes and using milk from a cooperative of second- and third-generation Wisconsin dairy families, Maple Leaf delivers old world cheesemaking with a distinctly American flavor. 
  • Led by cheesemakers Jeff Wideman and Paul Reigle, Maple Leaf delivers the highest in quality directly from Wisconsin—a heartland for American cheeses.
