Like this, right?
(You just go into the supermarket, usually right near the front door, grab a big burlap bag of chiles (usually divided by mild, medium, hot and forgetaboutit), pay for it (maybe $15/20), take it outside to the parking lot, they attendant rips it open and roasts it for you right there. Takes about 15 min.
As an alternative, go to local farmer's market where they roast their own right there and pop them into large plastic bags, buy while the bag is still hot. Sometimes they even roast other sweet peppers, which is a nice complement)
The tradition is to roll up a just roasted pepper in a warm tortilla and eat on the spot.
