Mix all the beef filling ingredients except the ground chuck in a small bowl. Brown and crumble ground chuck according to package directions. Drain grease off and add season mixture with one cup of water. Stir until mixed well over a low heat. Let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Most of the water should have cooked out.
To assemble the tacos:
Lay tortillas on a platter or plate and spoon ¼ cup of meat in the center of each tortilla, sprinkle tomato, shredded lettuce and cheese in the order of your choice. Top with a dollop of sour cream or to taste. Serve hot.
