2 (11-ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained
1 (8-ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice, drained

1 tablespoon dried cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped canned jalapeño

Preparation

Drain oranges; let stand on several layers of paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Snip orange slices in half using kitchen shears.

Combine pineapple and remaining 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, mixing well. Add oranges, stirring gently to combine. Spoon mixture into wide-mouth jars; seal and refrigerate. Serve as an appetizer with tortilla chips or as an accompaniment to chicken, fish, or pork.
