I did a search and found several recipes for different types (beef, tuna, guava, etc.). Here is one:

SPANISH PASTELILLOS (Meat Fritters)

A Spanish version of the meat pie!

INGREDIENTS:

Dough:
1 c. butter or shortening
4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. water (approximately)

Filling:
1 lb. ground meat
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. Spanish olives,
chopped
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 Tbsp. Spanish capers
3 slices bacon, chopped
1 can tomato sauce

Dough: Cut butter into sifted flour and salt until like
cornmeal. Add enough water to make firm dough. Cover and
chill.
Filling: Fry bacon, add green peppers, onion, salt,
garlic, olives, capers, Italian seasoning, pepper and paprika.
Add meat and brown. Add tomato sauce and simmer until cooked;
set aside to cool. Roll out dough on lightly floured board
until thin. Cut into 4-inch rounds. Place 2 tablespoons
filling in center. Brush edges with egg yolk. Fold in half
and firmly press edges together. Fry at 375 degrees in deep fat until
golden brown. Makes 12 fritters.
