  1. In a 9-x13-inch baking dish, combine lemon juice, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper. Add flank steak, turning to coat completely. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat broiler. Place steak on a rimmed baking sheet; discard excess marinade.
  3. Broil 8 to 9 minutes per side for medium, or until desired doneness beyond that. Allow to cool 10 minutes.
  4. Place steak on a cutting board and cut across the grain into thin slices, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Spread tortilla chips over two large rimmed baking sheets or oven-proof platter then top evenly with sliced steak and sprinkle with cheese. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake 5 to 6 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  5. Remove nachos from oven and slide onto a large platter; sprinkle with tomatoes and scallions. Serve immediately.
