Yield: Makes 4 servings.
Step 1: Bring potatoes, carrots, stock and bay leaves to a simmer in a large soup pot. Cook until the potatoes are just tender, about 10 to 15 min. Strain the vegetables, removing the bay leaves, and set aside.
Step 2: In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil or lard and sauté the onion and garlic with cumin until fragrant and tender, about 3 minutes. Mix in the lime juice and season with salt to taste.
Step 3: Combine the potatoes, and carrots and with the sautéed onions and garlic.
Step 4: Pour the enchilada sauce into a saucepan and heat.
Step 5: Heat oil in skillet to soften tortillas. Dip tortilla briefly in hot oil turning immediately. Then dip tortillas in enchilada sauce and roll tightly placing the queso fresco cubes inside (save some cheese to garnish). Fry the potatoes and carrots in the remaining oil, with a little of the enchilada sauce for flavour.
Step 6: Serve the enchiladas over a bed of shredded lettuce or cabbage and pour additional sauce over enchiladas. Garnish with carrots, potatoes, pickled jalapeño slices and cheese, if desired.
