1. Dice the potatoes and boil them in water for about 10 minutes. They will continue to cook in the picadillo later.
2. Brown your ground beef and remove any excess fat from your skillet.
3. Add sofrito, tomato sauce, onions and peppers. Add seasonings and cook for a few minutes until the vegetables become tender.
4. Add a little water if the picadillo dries up. Allow the picadillo to continue cooking until the potatoes are tender.
5. Place picadillo in the center of an empanada disc. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Fold over and crimp the edges with a fork.
6. Place oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Fry empanadas in small batches.
