  2. In a large skillet add oil and heat over medium-high heat. Don't allow the oil to smoke. (Smoking oil is unhealthy for you.)
  3. Add the ground turkey (or beef or buffaland onion. Break apart the meat, cooking until no longer pink inside.
  4. Add the taco seasoning and broth, stir, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Heat the beans in a small saucepan and add a splash of chicken broth or water to thin them out just a little.
  6. Place some beans down the center of one tortilla, add a few sliced olives, and sptinkle with cheese. Roll it up and place in a small individual platter or bowl.
  7. Top with the ground turkey mixture and add tomatoes, olives, and cheese, if desired.

Tips

*The Organic Reduced Sodium variety is the only beef flavored Better Than Bouillon that is gluten free. Not all of their flavors are gluten free. Read the labels carefully. Last time, I bought mine on eBay.
