This sure is tasty and great when you feel like pigging-out or cooking for a let-go-of-yourself dinner. You may adjust the amount of jalapeno peppers. Yummers!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  2. Arrange the zucchini in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared dish. Season the ground beef with the salt and pepper; spread gently over the layer of zucchini. Sprinkle the crushed potato chips over the beef. Scatter the jalapeno pepper over the chips. Place the cheese slices in a single layer atop the chips and jalapeno peppers.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese begins to melt, about 5 minutes; sprinkle the basil over the cheese and return to oven for another 5 minutes. Pour the water into the casserole dish; continue baking until the ground beef is cooked through entirely, about 35 minutes.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This turned out surprisingly delicious, but I did modify it a lot to suit my family's tastes. The main thing I did was precook the zucchini (steamed for about 5 minutes) & brown the ground beef. (I substituted 1 pound of ground turkey.) Cooking raw ground beef/turkey w/o browning never seems to turn out well for me. I omitted the water & salt (unnecessary) as well as the jalapeno pepper (my family doesn't do spicy) & used just 1 teaspoon of black pepper. I also substituted reduced fat Cheddar slices for the American cheese. I assembled the casserole as directed, then put it in the oven for just 5 minutes. Then I took it out to put the basil on it, & stuck it in the oven for 5 more minutes. It was ready to eat.

I liked this recipe but my boyfriend didn't seem to like it as much. It was something different then the usual for me. At first I thought using one whole jalepeno would be too hot but once it cooked it actually tasted good within the casserole. I would have gave it three and half stars actually.

This recipe makes no sense. 1/2 zucchini and 1/2 lb beef does not cover a 9X13 pan. Raw beef does not "spread gently." The cheese burns because it is put on too soon. We ended up keeping the beef and made tacos.
