Preheat oven to 450°F. In a bowl, toss turkey with taco seasoning. (If using leftover turkey that may be dry, toss with 2 tablespoons water and taco seasoning in a medium pot, cover and heat over medium-low heat until hot throughout, 5 to 7 minutes.)  

Spray a large, rimmed baking sheet with oil, and then arrange chips on tray. Scatter half of the cheese over chips, and then top with turkey and remaining cheese. Bake until melted, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together cranberry sauce, onion, cilantro, lime juice and jalapeños in a medium bowl.  

Serve nachos hot, with cranberry salsa to spoon over the top.
