Stir the soup, picante sauce, water and tortillas in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir the beef mixture. Top with the cheese and let the dish rest for a few minutes, until the cheese melts.
Garnish with the diced tomato and chopped cilantro, if desired, then serve.
