Break up the ground beef using a wooden spoon and brown completely over medium-high heat, this should take about 7 minutes.

Add the onions and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato sauce, oregano, cumin, sazon, olives, vino seco, and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper.

Place each empanada disc on a lightly floured surface. Put about 2 tbsp of the beef mixture and 1 tbsp of cheese in the center of each disc.
