Scallops with Stewed Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Scallops might not be the heartiest, but when you combine them with a chickpea stew you're guaranteed to stay cozy on cooler nights.Justin Walker

Tender, sweet scallops are paired with a tomato-rich chickpea stew, here spiced with merkén, a traditional Chilean red chile spice mix made from dried ajè cacho de cabra, or goat's horn chiles. This simple stew, from chef Juan Pablo Mellado Arana of Las Cabras, a soda fountain and restaurant in Providencia, Santiago, Chile, is ideal served with a hunk of crusty bread for dunking.
