  • Drain meat, place in baking dish, sprinkle evenly with season salt and garlic powder.
  • You have a few options here.
  • You can either bake it whole, break into chunks (Dh prefers this) or shred thickly (I prefer) I usually do some chunks and shreds.
  • Bake 30-45 minute You do not want it to get to crispy if you shredded it first. Watch carefully as you do not want it to dry out.
  • While still warm shred with 2 forks if left whole.
  • Serve with warm tortillas and pico de gallo.
