Since the OP was in search of bilingual schools yes I did assume that Maybe they were looking for areas that had SMALL populations and didn't want to get bashed so they did some reverse psychology on us! Dagnabbit! Foiled again! lol

Assuming is never a good thing.

However, Mole poblano, whose name comes from the Mexican state of Puebla, is a popular sauce in Mexican cuisine.

Besides, he says in one of his other posts that his wife is Mexican.

My favorite Mexican dish is chicken (pollo?) en mole. I wonder if it's really a genuine Mexican dish or another of the Americanized versions.

Monterey does have quite large Hispanic population due to the Perdue plant. In the Cookeville area, you'll find plenty of resources. We have a well developed ESL program in our schools, and many churches have a Spanish-speaking service.

The best! Living near Salinas, CA you would think there would be fantastic Mexican restaurants......not so much. Best pollo en mole I have ever had was in L.A.

Isolating and segregating to create a minority is not good. There is nothing wrong in keeping the flavor of the culture but must be blended and melted into the American to create on bigger and stronger culture. That meling start with forgetting Spanish, at least from the front door of the house, and learn a perfect English.

I doubt TN people will tolerate something like Miami or California. And to tell you the truth, I am the first one against it.

They might have someone to translate for you If you want something typical, try Cancun or Amigos. Good and reliable "Mexican" food. The Chimichanga is my fav.
You haven't lived untill you have "Fresh Green Chili" , it is only grown in Las Curces and Hatch, New Mexico. Oh, Green Chili Stew with a fresh Tortilla, out of the world. I buy a sack of Chili every fall and roast out on the grill. The smell is wonderful especially on a cloudy, rainy day. I have overnighted this stuff back east to friends and family and now someone will have to do the same for us. It's not cheap to overnight but it is certainly worth it!!! We will be in Tennessee by the middle of July, just sold our house here in New Mexico. I am a grengo but love mexican food!!!!! Oh and don't forget the Sopapillas!!!!!!!!!! MMMMMMMMMMMMM,Great with honey or stuffed.
