This recipe was given to me by the home economic teacher in New Mexico in 1960 . This is a little spicy from the chorizo and a little tang from the lemon. The scallops give it richness and the potatoes give it the creaminess...
Please try not to overcook the scallops.Just sear them.The pan should be really hot but not smoking when you sear them Just until the outside is caramelized and the inside is slightly translucent...I hope you enjoy this old recipe...
