The definition of salad

Belovedest made tater tots last night, and we all had some (except the cats). They added some of the cooked ground beef and some cheese, and said something about stretching the definition of salad.

This was clearly (to me, anyway) in the same spirit of shitposting about the definition of sandwiches. So I considered my rules. "If it doesn't have anything that looks like it's photosynthesized recently, it's nachos," I declared.

This was accepted. Though I think the thing that makes it a nacho is the melted cheese. (By which definition, a staple of my childhood was rice nachos.)

Sounds like a version of what several local restaurants call "irish channel nachos". i.e. potato skins with the usual nacho toppings.

I've had the home fries variant and the thick cut fries variant, but not the shoestring kind. I think that means further research is needed.
