  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.
