Baked Stuffed Papayas
---------------------
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 pound ground beef
1 (16-ounce) can whole tomatoes, drained
1 jalapeno chile, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 papayas (about 12 ounces each)

Cook and stir ground beef, onion, and garlic in 10-inch skillet over medium
heat until beef is light brown. Drain; stir in tomatoes, jalapeno pepper,
salt, and pepper. Break up tomatoes with fork. Heat to boiling. Reduce
heat; simmer uncovered, until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 10
minutes.

Cut papayas lengthwise into halves and remove seeds. Place about 1/3 cup
beef mixture in each papaya half.

Arrange in shallow roasting pan. Pour very hot water into pan to within 1
inch of tops of papaya halves. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees until
papayas are very tender and hot, about 30 minutes. Yield: 4 servings
