How to make Quick Mexican Style Soup

This is a very quick soup that is easy and hearty!

In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat.  Add garlic, shallot, cumin, carrots, and celery.  Saute for about 5 minutes until very fragrant. 

Add stock and bring to a boil.  Add the oregano, cayenne, 1/2 of the cilantro, and the orzo.  Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 8 minutes until orzo and vegetables are al dente.

Top with the rest of the cilantro and green onions and garnish with lime zest, sharp cheese, sour cream, and/or avocado.
