```My two humble attempts try to eliminate numbers like 0.15000000000000002

z = Partition[zVals, 10];

r = Range[0.05, 1, 0.1] // Rationalize // N

xy = Outer[List, r, r];

MapIndexed[Join[#1, {Extract[z, #2]}] &, xy, {2}]

(* or *)

Partition[Table[Join[Tuples[r, 2][[j]], {zVals[[j]]}], {j, 100}], 10]

(I like WCC's solution though)
