Put the olive oil in a large skillet and cook the turkey meat with the spices.
In a separate pot, warm the beans with a little water to make them more fluid. Not runny, just pourable.
Place the cooked meat in the bottom of a 9x13 baking or casserole dish.
Pour the beans over that, being sure to cover the whole area.
Layer the toppings of your choice and serve.
