Preheat oven broiler to high heat. Place chilies in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil chilies 4 inches from heat, turning occasionally, until charred and blackened (about 10-12 minutes).
Remove from oven, cover chilies with foil, and let stand 5 minutes. Change oven temperature to 450°F.
While chilies broil and stand, combine onion and oil in a 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir often until onion is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
Add turkey, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, and salt to taste. Stir often until turkey is almost completely browned, about 3 minutes.
Sprinkle meat with flour and stir over heat 1 more minute. Add broth and stir until sauce thickens, in about 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat.With a small, sharp knife, carefully peel away and discard the blackened parts of the chilies’outer skin, being careful not to tear into the flesh.
Leaving stems of chilies intact, carefully make a slit lengthwise down each chili, cutting through only the top side. Scoop out and discard seeds and inner veins.
Carefully spoon turkey mixture equally into chilies. Sprinkle equally with cheese.
Return stuffed chilies to oven and bake until cheese is bubbling and browned, about 8-10minutes. Use a wide spatula to carefully transfer chilies to plates and serve.
