We are loving this easy cheese ball! Have you ever had a pepper jack cheese ball? We hadn’t until we came up with this one and wow, it’s so good! We love the spice from the peppers in the pepper jack cheese as well as the added jalapeño in the mixture. We’ve also added in some charred scallion that adds a nice smokiness to the cheese ball.
The best part though? The best part is the crunchy Get Pepper Jacked Moon Cheese that we rolled the cheese ball in! BEST IDEA EVER. Also, how fun is that name? GENIUS.
We obviously are huge fans of Moon Cheese for an easy snack but we’ve been enjoying coming up with recipes incorporating this tasty snack too. See the bottom of this post for some more Moon Cheese recipe goodness!
This is definitely a cheese lover’s cheese ball since it has 3 different kinds of cheese! Want to make this strict pepper jack and leave out the cheddar? That’s super delicious so feel free to do that. We kind of like the extra sharp cheddar here though.
Wondering what to serve with a cheese ball that would be Keto-friendly? We love seed crackers as well as sliced cucumbers! You could also serve it with pork rinds.
