In a medium sized sauce pan on medium heat melt together the butter and flour and whisk together and cook for 2 to 3 minutes to form a blond roux. Set aside.
In a large pot on high heat add in the bacon and cook until brown and crispy. Once cooked, remove the bacon lardons and set aside.
Next, add the onions, celery and garlic to the pot and caramelize the vegetables. Once brown add in the corn and beans and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Deglaze with the cream sherry and cook until it has been absorbed. Add in potatoes, chicken and stock and bring to a boil.
Once boiling whisk in the roux and turn down the heat to medium until the soup becomes very thick.
Next, pour in the 1/2 & 1/2, season with salt and pepper, Worcestershire and tabasco and simmer on low heat. Remember soup tastes better as time goes on.
Garnish the soup with the cooked bacon lardons and sliced green onions.
