Add the softened Canadian cream cheese, Canadian cheddar cheese, pickled jalapenos and the spices to a large mixing bowl. Mix the filling together with a rubber spatula, until the cream cheese is smooth and all of the ingredients are combined together.

Spread approximately ¼ cup of the cream cheese mixture across each flour tortilla into an even layer from edge to edge.

Roll the tortillas up tightly, to keep the cream cheese filling inside the tortillas. Refrigerate the rolled tortillas for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Once cooled, slice each roll into 6-even sized rounds.
