Cook beef on medium heat in medium sized pan until brown. Drain grease and discard.
Add Sazón packet, Sofrito, Adobo, and black pepper. (Optionally add 1/4 cup water and cook until evaporated. This helps mix in the spices a bit) and mix together well.
Add cheese and mix until melted. Mix in diced olives and remove from heat.
To assemble the pastelillos, separate one disco at a time (or do it assembly line for fun). Dip fingers in the cup of water, and wet the outer ring of the dough circle. Fill with a good amount bit of the beef mixture. Fold over the disco evenly and press firmly with fingers to seal. Press with a fork around the edge to help seal.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees about halfway through.
Set on a sprayed (foiled and sprayed works fine for easy cleanup) cookie sheet until all are built.
Lightly brush the tops of the pastelillos with olive oil, and bake for 15-25 minutes or until tops firm up.
Most recipes will fry these in oil, but I find them to be tasty and healthier baked.
Defrost the discos completely before starting. Putting in the olives too soon can make them too salty.
