The picture isnt to clear to me, maybe its mushrooms? What kind of soil are the peppers planted in?

My vision is not what it used to be, but I also think it is roots.

Go ahead and bury any visible roots; they make your plant stronger. :)

Have a terrific weekend and Happy Easter!

I found a link that says yes, sometimes the adventitious roots do sometimes form on the pepper plants.

Lots of people call these "prop roots." They literally "prop up" the plant. I keep peppers and when I see these, I bury the whole plant just a little deeper. That's usually what the plant wants, which is why it's sending out roots there, for extra stability.
Keep going!
