Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cayenne, and black pepper.
Add the cold butter, and mix with a pastry blender, a fork, or your hands until the butter is about the size of small peas.
Add about 3/4 of the buttermilk, and continue mixing. Continue adding buttermilk, about a tablespoonful at a time, until a dough forms. You may not need to use all of the buttermilk.
Mix in the cheese and jalapeños.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out to 1/2-inch thick.
Use a 2 & 1/2-inch biscuit cutter or other round cutter to cut out biscuits. Gather and re-roll the dough once and continue cutting out biscuits.
Place the biscuits on the prepared pan. Brush the tops with the melted butter.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown.
