  1. For Reina Pepiada: Place the chicken in a large bowl. Add the onions, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and cilantro and salt and pepper to taste and stir to combine. Gently stir in the avocado, taste, and adjust the seasonings as needed.
  2. For Plating: Slice a slit into the top edge of each arepa and gently wiggle a paring knife into the arepa, creating a pocket.
  3. Divide the Reina Pepiada among the arepas.
  4. Add Danbo Cheese
