Spoon tomatoes into a medium bowl; stir in chili powder, scallion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Stir salsa; set aside while making scrambled eggs.
- 2. To make eggs, in a medium bowl, beat together eggs, egg whites, oregano, salt, pepper and cumin; set aside.
- 3. 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 4 to 5 minutes. Serve eggs topped with salsa or salsa on the side.
- 4. TIP---
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. To make this recipe truly Tex-Mex, top with some baked tortilla strips (could affect SmartPoints value).
