Heat margarine and oil in 12-inch skillet over medium heat until hot.
Add tortilla strips and onions; cook, turning occasionally, until tortillas are brown.
Mix remaining ingredients except cheese; pour into skillet.
As mixture begins to set at bottom and side, gently lift cooked portion with spatula so that thin uncooked portion can flow to bottom.
Turn egg mixture; cook just until eggs are set but not dry.
Sprinkle with cheese.
