Pepperjack cheese is Monterey jack cheese with bits and pieces of hot peppers. It is so good on sandwiches.

Lifter, I can just see that recipe contained in a hollowed bread round with crostini rounds -- YUM! I especially like the idea of water chestnuts!

azn, your recipe looks rich as can be! Forgive a potentially stupid question, but why do you soak your diced onion in water? (Getting ready to learn a new trick here [arf!]!)
