Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink. Drain fat. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, until water is almost all absorbed.

In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the soups, onion, tomatoes, Cheez Whiz, Tabasco and Worcestershire Sauce until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
