Holes in my peppers and leaves?

Hello Everyone,
I've been seeing holes in my pepper plant. It's an imported (by my grandmother) Spanish variety that I think is Gernika. I noticed when she brought the young plant to my house there were a few holes in the leaves.

There have steadily been more and more holes, but it didn't bother me until I noticed one in a pepper. What kind of pest is this and how can I stop it without making the peppers inedible?

The one thing I do notice is ants. I have ants on all my plants all the time but don't see holes in any of my other plants. I never bothered about the ants because I assumed they were possibly helping with pollination

I'm no experienced gardner so it's probably something obvious. It's in a pot and is thriving lately with dozens of little pepper 'buds'.If this is a repost, I'm sorry, my internet is struggling
