Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and melt a tablespoon of butter in the pan. (You can skip the butter if you are using the pan after cooking bacon.) Add the corn, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika and chile powder to the hot skillet and toss to coat. Saute for 2-3 minutes until warm and still crisp. Drizzle with lime juice and toss again.
