Layered Taco Bake

I had bought one of those kits that was supposed to make something similar to this, but I was really disappointed with the kit. It just contained some tortillas, taco seasoning, and a very small packet of nacho cheese that would barely even cover one layer. So, I re-created the recipe, making some additions, which made it much better.
It doesn't make a lot, so I would recommend making two of them if you are feeding a family.

Layered Taco Bake

1 lb. ground beef
¼ cup water
1 packet taco seasoning
1 cup salsa
1 small onion, chopped
½ cup diced tomatoes
½ cup jalapeno slices
Shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
3 (8 inch) tortillas

Brown ground beef, drain. Add water, taco seasoning, salsa, and most of the onions and jalapenos, leaving aside a few for topping. Cook and additional 5 minutes, or until beef mixture thickens and is well heated through.
Place one of the tortillas in an ungreased pie pan. Top with a later of the beef mixture, then a layer of cheese. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining onions, jalapenos, and tomatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, and serve.
Individual servings may be topped with desired extra toppings, such as lettuce, sour cream, additional salsa, etc.
