Heat a large skillet over medium. Once warm, add the oil and onion. Sauté for 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds more. Stir in the oregano and cumin and cook until fragrant for 1 minute. Add in chipotles, tomatoes and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, and cook for 7 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
Place the tomato mixture in a high-powered or regular blender, and blend until smooth.
Return blended sauce to pan and gently place chicken in pan. Warm through for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt if necessary.
Prepare the garnishes. To assemble, fold chicken and top the tortillas then garnish with the avocado slices, cilantro, red onion, and cotija cheese. Serve with a lime wedge for squeezing.
