  1. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute, stirring often, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes total.

  3. Discard bay leaf and puree, leaving a little bit of texture, using an immersion blender or regular blender. Set aside. 
  4. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Spray an 8" x 8" baking dish with cooking spray.
  5. Melt butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add chiles and turkey. Season with salt and whisk again to combine. Pour into pan and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and fluffy. Remove from heat.
  6. Lay each tortilla on a flat surface. Spread the center of one side of the tortilla with beans. Top with egg mixture and half of the cheese. Fold in sides of tortillas and tightly wrap to seal, burrito-style.
  7. Spread a few tablespoons of sauc in the bottom of the baking dish and transfer burritos to dish, placing them seam-side down. Top with enchilada sauce, followed by the remaining cheese. Transfer to the oven to bake until heated through and cheese is browned and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and garnish with onion, sour cream, avocado and cilantro, passing limes alongside and spooning additional sauce on top.
