(If you don't want a lot of spicy heat, add a milder can of Rotel.) After about 15 minutes, add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Pour in rice and add seasoning. Cook for 45 minutes, until the chicken stock cooks into the rice; stir occasionally. After the rice is ready, stir in the shrimp and scallops. Let this cook for about five minutes.
