Preheat oven to 350°F Line baking sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together the chicken or turkey, cheese, squash and carrot purees, cream cheese, garlic powder, and salt.

Cut the tortillas in half. Place one half on the work surface with the straight edge facing you. Spread about two tablespoons of the filling along that edge from one side to the other. Starting at the edge, roll the tortilla into a cigar shape, completely enclosing the filling. Place seam side down on the baking sheet. Stuff and roll the rest of the tortillas the same way.

Bake until the tortillas begin to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
