Preheat your broiler to high (to broil assembled tortilla pie). Wash and dry all produce.* Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Zest, then juice half the lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges. Peel, then finely chop shallot into 1/4-inch pieces. Cut tortillas in half. Set aside. Drain and rinse beans. Peel, pit, then cut avocados into 1/2-inch pieces. In a small bowl, stir together avocado pieces and lime juice. Set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then shallots and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until shallots soften, 1-2 min. Add turkey and Mexican seasoning. Cook, breaking up turkey into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 74°C/165°F.**)
To the pan with turkey, add beans, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, half the lime zest and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans soften, and most liquid has been absorbed, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper.
In a 9x13 baking dish, arrange and spread out 6 tortilla halves. (NOTE: It's OK if tortillas overlap!) Using a slotted spoon, spread 1 1/4 cups turkey mixture overtop of tortillas. Repeat with another 6 tortilla halves and another 1 1/4 cups turkey mixture. Repeat with remaining tortillas and remaining turkey mixture. (NOTE: You'll end with a turkey mixture layer on top, like a lasagna.)
Sprinkle cheese overtop assembled tortilla pie. Broil pie in the middle of the oven, until cheese melts and is slightly crispy, 5-6 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn!) Meanwhile, in the small bowl with avocado pieces, add remaining lime zest. Using a fork or potato masher, mash together avocado until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide tortilla pie between plates. Dollop with sour cream and guac. Squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
