Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic and onions. Cook, stirring often, 8 to 10 minutes, until onions are translucent. Stir in tomatoes, broth, oregano, ground chipotle pepper, cumin, black pepper, bay leaf and turkey. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer. Simmer 15 minutes to allow flavors to meld.

To serve, break corn chips (about 5 or 6 per serving) into bite-size pieces and place in bowls. Ladle soup over chips. Sprinkle with cilantro and cheese. Garnish with avocado slices and lime wedges.
