   ~-------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet until hot.  Cook tortilla strips in the hot
   oil until they are light golden brown, about 30 to 60 seconds and then
   drain.  Set aside.  Cook onions in margarine in a 3-quart sauce pan over
   low heat until tender, then stir in the flour, salt and pepper.  Cook,
   stirring constantly, until mixture is bubbly.  Remove from heat, stir in
   half & half (light cream).  Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.  Boil and
   stir for 1 minute, then reduce the heat.  Stir in remaining ingredients
   except the bacon.  Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, just until
   the shrimp are pink, about 9 minutes.  Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
   Layer half of the tortilla strips in the bottom of a greased 3-quart
   casserole; top with half of the seafood mixture.  Repeat with remaining
   tortilla strips and seafood mixture; top with the bacon.  Bake until hot,
   15 to 20 minutes.
