Preheat the oven to about 200 degrees celsius.
Dice the tomatoes and drain them a little so they won't get the chips all soggy. Chop up the spring onions and grate the cheese.
Fry the ground beef (don't forget to add the seasoning) until brown. I don't use butter, because I like to have the beef as dry as possible. This is to counter potential sogginess of the chips.
Spread the refried beans with a spoon on the bottom of the oven plate. (Yes, it is supposed to smell like dog food).
Put on a layer of chips, a layer of tomatoes, spring onions, ground beef and cheese.
Put on another layer of chips, tomatoes, spring onions, ground beef and cheese.
Put on the final layer of chips (be sure to leave some for later!) and the rest of the tomatoes, spring onions, ground beef and cheese.
Put in the oven until the cheese is melted and is starting to turn brown. I think this takes about 10 minutes, but I never keep track.
Time to eat! Dip your chips in the salsa, or pour the salsa over your nacho mountain.
Notes: use more cheese than you think is necessary. You will be rewarded for it. Really, overdo it.
