Beat cream cheese with electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Add in Tostitos® Fiery Habanero Salsa, cilantro and habanero (or jalapeño) pepper and mix until blended. Add 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese and mix until combined.
Pour cheese mixture onto parchment paper, wet hands and shape into a ball.
Press remaining 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese around ball and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Stretch rubber bands evenly around ball, forming pumpkin shape. Chill for at least 3 hours and up to 2 days.
When ready to serve, remove entire stem of a bell pepper and cut olives to create two eyes, a nose and a mouth.
Carefully remove rubber bands and plastic wrap. Transfer to a serving plate and press down lightly to flatten. Press a chopstick or wooden skewer into indentation to accentuate the pumpkin shape, if desired.
Add olives to one side to create a face, and top with the bell pepper stem before serving with Tostitos® Bite Size Tortilla Chips.
