This is incredibly easy to get during Episode Three, the same chapter you get access to the flashbangs. Don't bother wasting them on the smaller groups of enemies, you've got plenty of bullets, batteries and flares to handle them. When you get three or more enemies together drop a flashbang in the middle of them and stand near it. They will come towards you and end up right on top of it, getting blown away when it goes off. This happens pretty fast since Episode Three has numerous situations where you're jumped by large groups of enemies.

Also keep in mind that flashbangs handle in one of two ways:
1: When thrown and bouncing around on the ground they explode after roughly three seconds. Give yourself enough time for it to go off so you don't get mangled by the enemies.
2: If you throw the grenade and it hits someone as it leaves your hand it will explode immediately. This is effectively your panic button. Try not to do this too often since you will often only get the enemy you hit with it and, possibly, blind the others nearby for a moment.
