Here's one version, this is not my recipe and I've never made this but my source tells me that it's very good.
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
½ teaspoon salt
4 cups water
4 ancho chiles, stemmed and seeded
5 cloves garlic, peeled
1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
2 cups canned white hominy, drained
3 Roma tomatoes, cored, seeded, and diced
4 cups chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup sliced radishes
1 cup diced onion
2 cups fried corn tortillas strips or crushed corn chips
1 cup diced avocado
¼ cup dried oregano
Combine the chicken, salt and water in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook uncovered until barely done, about 15 minutes. Let cool then strain, reserving the broth. Cover the chicken with a wet clean towel and set aside.
Soak the chilies in the reserved warm broth for 20 minutes. Add the garlic and oregano; transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
Heat the oil in a medium stockpot over medium-high heat. Saute the onion lightly until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the pureed chile mixture, hominy, tomatoes, the 4 cups chicken stock and the chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook uncovered until chicken is tender, about 30 minutes longer. Stir occasionally to prevent the hominy from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Season with salt and pepper and serve in large soup bowls. Bring garnishes to table.
Note: You can also use bone-in chicken instead of the boneless and then shred the meat from the bone after cooking.

Sounds great.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
