  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Place the chips on a large baking tray and bake for 20 mins until golden and crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the salsa, sweetcorn and most of the spring onions in a bowl and season with pepper. Gently fold in the tuna, trying not to break it up too much.
  3. Mash the soft cheese with about ¼ of the grated Cheddar. Heat the grill to high.
  4. When the chips are cooked, spoon tablespoons of the tuna and salsa mix over the chips. Top with spoons of the soft cheese mix, then scatter over the remaining Cheddar and grill for 5-10 mins until the cheese is bubbling. Scatter with the remaining spring onions to serve.
