  • Add the corn and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add butter and flour and cook for 10 more minutes.
  • While stirring, add the chicken stock, heavy cream, seasonings, potatoes, and Tabasco sauce to the pot and cook for another 8-10 minutes until potatoes are tender.
  • Ladle into bowls and top with cooked bacon, garnish with thyme leaves and drops of Tabasco.
