Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. In a Dutch oven, brown chicken, onion and garlic in butter until chicken is no longer pink. Dissolve the bouillon in hot water. Add to the pan along with the cumin, bring to a boil. Reduce heat , cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add half and half, cheese, corn and tobasco sauce. Cook and stir over low heat until the cheese is melted. Garnish with green onions and serve.
