In large nonstick skillet, sauté turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up with fork, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Drain off fat.

Add garlic, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper; sauté over medium heat to blend flavours and evaporate liquid, about 6 minutes. Stir in green onions and chili sauce. Scrape into serving bowl.

Meanwhile, heat taco shells in microwave oven at medium (50% power) for 30 seconds.

Serve meat mixture and bowls of lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream and avocado for everyone to spoon into taco shells.
