The shortest answer...resistance training. Easiest way...lift weight. Now for details.
Not all body types are the same and certainly genetics play a HUGE role in how your body will respond to the exercises. However, that doesn't mean that you can or can't build muscle. It only means the way you train may have to vary.
If you are genetically predisposed to building muscle such as most of your professional athletes like body builders, football defensive and offensive linemen, wrestlers, etc., the muscle will come fairly quickly but for others...not so much.
For the average Jo, such as myself, I need specific training to gain muscle and my nutrition plays a role as well. My hubpages offer more information but to start, give this plan a try.

you've already got muscles, if you didn't, you'd be dead. exercise for stronger bigger muscles, don't overdo it though, or you'll get muscle bound. It has been said that the perfectly toned body is like the African Bushman, lean and muscular but not massive bicepts etc, they're just for show, for winning competitions.
