  Regular strength chicken broth 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Salad oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cooked turkey/Cooked chicken 2 Cup (32 tbs), finely diced
  Pitted ripe olives 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), coarsely chopped
  Onion 1 Medium, finely chopped
  Canned green chile salsa 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Cut 30 pieces of foil, each 6 inches square.
Stir together masa flour, chicken broth, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and oil to make a thick paste.
Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the paste in a 3-inch square in center of each piece of foil.
In a bowl, mix turkey, olives, onion, and salsa; season to taste with salt.
Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the filling down center of each masa square.
Fold foil edges together so masa edges meet; seal all sides.
Steam as directed for Basic Tamales until masa is firm to touch; unwrap to test (about 45 minutes).
