Add the corn, lima beans and the white parts of the scallions and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup water, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Simmer until the vegetables are tender and most of the water has reduced, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in the bacon, scallion greens and season with salt and pepper.
