We haven't tried this yet, but I wanted to post it for ZWT8. I don't often find low-fat southwestern recipes, so I was excited to find this. Prep time includes cooking rice.

Very enjoyable scallops! The rice is wonderful, and I'll make it again just by itself. I'm a bit of a scallop-a-holic, and this is the first time I've used these seasonings on scallops. Delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8.
