Add beans to beef mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 1 minute. Use a potato masher or fork to slightly mash and break down beans. Add taco seasoning and water; cook, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in salsa; cook 1 minute. Spoon beefy bean mixture evenly over chips; top evenly with cheese.
