Heat about an inch of oil in a large skillet. Cut the plantain into 1/2-inch slices and fry it in the hot oil. Remove the plantain from the oil and press down with a wooden block or spoon to hollow it out so it looks like a small cup. Fry the cups again to firm up.
Scoop the tomato mixture into the plantains and serve.
