  1. In a stock pot set over medium-high heat, warm the coconut oil.
     
  2. Add the turkey and sauté it until browned.  Then add the onion and squash, sautéing until the squash is soft, about 5 to 10 minutes.  Stir frequently to prevent burning.
     
  3. Add the garlic, red pepper, and zucchini
     
  4. Sauté an additional 3 minutes
     
  5. Add the chili powder, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, and cacao powder, and continue cooking until the spices are fragrant -- about 2 minutes.  Then add the tomatoes and simmer for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
     
  6. Sprinkle each serving with chopped cilantro or green onions -- optional.
     
  7. Serve warm.
