I have to agree that I have NEVER heard anyone of latin-american descent call themselves "spanish". In fact, I know that it really makes my husband irked when someone calls HIM spanish (he says he is puerto rican... NOT from Spain! And that he finds being called Spanish just plain ignorant. No different from if someone were to say I was "English", when I'm a US citizen. It just isn't right.)

They say Comida hispana. "Hispanic food". Not comida española, "spanish food".

That said, even though I disagree with your nomanclature, soilman, I do agree that the grocery stores in my neighborhood (a hispanic neighborhood) have a lot more selection as far as veggies. And cheaper, too!
