I went to our local mexican supermarket today and realized that I'm limiting myself to just a few of the many vegetables offered there. I know a few of the basic ones, but would like to learn some of the more unique ones offered there.

If you're looking for something on starchy vegetables and tropical roots, as well as squashes, corn and beans, I'd recommend the recently published Gran Cocina Latina. It's not "Mexican", but it covers Latin America vegetables.

in 1995 my Nani gave me Patricia Quintana's Mexico's Feasts Of Life - it has a bounty of information on the feasts, the ingredients and the techniques. Now that I have pulled it back out, I think it's high time I did some more cooking from it. You can order from Amazon (of COURSE)
