To prepare salsa, pour tomatoes into a fine-mesh strainer set in sink; press on tomatoes to drain off all liquid, leaving about 1 cup of diced tomato. Spoon tomatoes into a medium bowl; stir in chili powder, scallion, cilantro, lime juice, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp pepper. Stir salsa; set aside.
To make eggs, in a medium bowl, beat together eggs, oregano, remaining 1/4 tsp salt, remaining 1/8 tsp pepper, and cumin; set aside.
Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat for 30 seconds. Add shallot and jalapeno; cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots are tender, about 3 minutes. Pour egg mixture into skillet; cook until eggs are almost cooked through, scrambling occasionally, about 3-4 minutes. Serve eggs with salsa.
Serving size: about 1 cup eggs and 1/2 cup salsa

If you can find canned tomatoes with chipotle chiles, use them and omit the chili powder in the salsa. You can also save time by using your favorite spicy jarred salsa instead of making your own.
