“What do you call a pious pepper?"/"A holy peño.”

"Holy peño” is sometimes given for “jalapeño.” A “Holy-Peno Burger” by 8-year-old Charlie Beckett from Rathdrum, Idaho, was cited on Twitter on December 5, 2008 and sold at Red Robin restaurants in 2009.

A joke was posted on Reddit on July 28, 2016 and cited on Twitter:

Q: What do you call a pious pepper?
A: A holy peño.

Wikipedia: Jalapeño
The jalapeño (/ˌhæləˈpiːnoʊ/ or /ˌhæləˈpeɪnjoʊ/, Spanish pronunciation: [xalaˈpeɲo]) is a medium-sized chili pepper pod type cultivar of the species Capsicum annuum. A mature jalapeño fruit is 5–10 cm (2–4 in) long and hangs down with a round, firm, smooth flesh of 1–1.5 in (25–38 mm) wide. It is of mild to medium pungency, having a range of 1,000 to 20,000 Scoville units, depending on cultivar. Commonly picked and consumed while still green, it is occasionally allowed to fully ripen and turn red, orange or yellow, and is wider and milder than the Serrano pepper.
