Personal Notes:
This recipe is a hot one, but delicious! If you are weak of tongue - then divide the amount of peppers in half! Bay scallops are preferred, but larger sea scallops can be used if they are cut in half. This dish can also be placed in a casserole dish and placed under the broiler - adding a bit more cheese - until it turns golden brown!
