In a skillet, heat oil on medium heat. Stir in ground meat and cook just till sizzling and half browned.
Stir in the remaining ingredients, (except cheese, egg, discos and frying oil).
Lower heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes until mixture thickens.
With your thawed Goya discos, spoon about 1 tbsp of the mixture into the middle with a sprinkle of cheese, fold-over and moisten edges with the egg and seal with a fork.
Heat 2 1/2 inches of oil in a deep sauce pan on medium heat. Cook empanadas in batches, turning till lightly browned on both sides.
Drain on paper towels and enjoy one of my favorite foods on earth!
Goya sofrito can be found in the Latin isles of your grocery store and the Goya Discos can be found in the frozen section.
