I was out of Velveeta, the cheese I usually use for a grilled cheese. Instead I used raw (unpasteurized) pepper jack cheese. I'll never go back to Velveeta grilled cheese again! Even my picky 3-year-old brother loves them and keeps asking me to make him a "spicy grilled cheese!"

Very good grilled cheese! Love the kick for a change of pace. Made for the Aussie/New Zealand Recipe Swap #22.

It doesn't get any better, Bella. Great variation on a classic.
