It is used to refer to being sunburned. So if I fell asleep on the beach all day with no sunscreen on, I would be "burned to a crisp." It can also be used to refer to something that is so burnt that it is blackened and charred, like bacon that has been cooked for too long.

Extremely burnt.

It means something was burned so thoroughly that there was nothing left but a crisp, a cinder.
