Stir in chicken, taco seasoning mix, water, tomatoes and green chiles until well coated. Heat to simmering; cook uncovered 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is heated through.

Remove from heat; stir in pepper Jack cheese. Pour mixture into baking dish. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
