Cook and stir 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.

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.

Pour very hot water into pan to within 1 inch of tops of papaya halves.
