    Place poblano peppers on a baking tray and roast them under the broiler until they look browned, about 8-10 minutes flip them once. Remove from oven, transfer to a dish and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 3-5 minutes. Remove their skin and clean out the seeds. Chop and set aside.

    In a food processor, add onions, garlic and carrot and process until finely chopped. Set aside.

    Heat the oil in a medium-size pot on medium-high heat. Add ground beef and cook, use a wooden spoon to break apart the larger pieces. Cook for 5-8 minutes until you no longer see any red or pink. Add chopped vegetables and cook until they become translucent. Season with salt and pepper.

    Add tomatoes, wine, bay leaf and oregano. Reduce heat and cook on low for 45-60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chopped roasted peppers and cook for 3-5 minutes.
