  1. Saut√© the onions in the coconut oil until they become translucent.

  2. Add corn and cook for about 1-2 minutes.

  3. Add the turkey, being sure to stir well so it crumbles well.

  4. Stir in the spices.

  5. When the turkey is very nearly done, add the chicken broth and the pumpkin. This will create a bit of a sauce.

  6. When the meat is done, cool slightly and ladle over pasta. Top with fresh cilantro and serve.
