  1. In deep skillet, saute veggies in olive oil for 5-7 minutes or until they start to tenderize. Stir in ground turkey and break apart into smaller pieces. Once turkey is completely cooked, stir in taco seasoning and water. Let it cook down until most of the water has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and keep warm until you are ready to serve.
