2 problems actually......
1st is this is a dream held by many people. Many also speak english and spanish and rthe down turn in the economy has it even harder to find a job here. Your profession is high competition so it's a double edge sword for you.
Second will be your FM3 card you will need as your not native Mexican. This is near impossible to obtain.
Google FM3 or Rollybrook.com and read up.

Mickey is mostly right but the good news is that you can get away with not having to do an FM3 if you're just wanting to teach English... especially if it's just temporarily. English schools here in Guadalajara typically have such a high turnover rate of foreign teachers that they don't even bother with the Visa since it is such a hassle to get. No, technically it's not Legal, but please...
Your best bet is to get searching on the Internet or just come down for a month and show up at schools and tell them you're looking. I would stay sway from 'Quick Learning,' you won't have much luck there.. but Vancouver Language Center is a popular choice here and it isn't too hard to get a job (they may help you with the visa too, if you're serious). You will however, have to be TOEFL Certified to teach there.
There are literally hundreds of English teaching schools here of all sizes so you're bound to find something if you look long and hard enough. But Mickey is right in that it is something of a competitive field here as a very large percentage of Americans that come to live / work here are restricted to that line of work. And with the tough economic times it isn't getting any easier. But I managed to do it and 5 years later I'm still here :) Good Luck!
