In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, peppers and onions over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the ground beef is browned, about 10 minutes. Drain off the fat.
Add the water, rice, salsa and taco seasoning and stir together. Heat until the mixture is boiling, then cover the skillet, reduce heat to low and let simmer until the rice absorbs the water and is cooked, about 15 minutes.
Once the rice is done cooking, sprinkle with the cheese and serve. Enjoy!
