In a large pot, on high heat, heat the olive oil. When pot is hot, add turkey and chicken and saute quickly until golden brown on all sides. Remove the meats and reserve. To the pan, add the peppers, cilantro and garlic and turn heat to medium high. Cook until caramelized. Pour the rice into the pan and coat it with the mixture. Add the 4 cups water, scallions and packets of Sazon. Stir until mixed well and turn the heat to high until the rice begins to boil. Add the meats and simmer until the rice is cooked through and the mixture begins to thicken slightly. Add more water if needed.
In a blender, place some of the spinach in and 1/2 cup of water and blend well. Add more spinach as it is blended and more water, if needed. The mixture should be very green and thick. When the rice is done and right before serving add the spinach puree and mix well. Salt and pepper, to taste. Fill 2 round molds with rice, pat down slightly and invert onto the center of each plate to make drums. Place the olives on the tips of the breadsticks to make drumsticks and write a message on the rim of the plate with the tomato paste. Serve warm.
