I'm going out on a limb here, but I read a long time ago that when Columbus came to the new world and tasted chile, it was hot like pepper, so he called it pepper. Everywhere I've traveled in Mexico it is called chile. Chile poblano, chile jalapeño, chile habanero. Around here it is most always anglos who call it pepper. And it is a great health food. The average jalapeño has more vitamin C than an orange. And I LIKE 'em!!!

I saw that too & was wondering if they were synonymous

Some say it's a green chile, others, a green pepper, so I think it's a regional thing. Meaning different things to different people, either a hot or sweet pepper depending on where you come from..
