Meanwhile, brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add water and taco seasoning mix; stir. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 min.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Substitute ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef.
To cut back on the fat, prepare as directed using extra-lean ground beef or simulated ground beef, Cheez Whiz Light Process Cheese Product, Cracker Barrel Light Cheese and baked tortilla chips. If using the simulated ground beef, mix with the water and taco seasoning mix in large skillet, then bring to boil and continue as directed.
