Cut plantains lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Heat 2 Tbsp. dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add half the plantains; cook 1-1/2 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm. Repeat with 2 Tbsp. of the remaining dressing and remaining plantains.

Add peppers, onions, olives, garlic, 1/4 cup cilantro and remaining dressing to skillet; cook and stir on medium heat 5 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in meat, tomato sauce and seasoning. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally; simmer on medium-low heat 10 min. or until meat is done, stirring occasionally.
