New delicious way to add papaya to lunch or dinner today!

Preparation
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 until 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. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. 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.
