HELP! Steep Slope Covered in Weeds - Southern California

I recently purchased a house in southern California and the seller decided to add a huge layer of mulch to an already weed infested slope (see photos) in the backyard. So far, I have been able to remove most of the much and hand pull the weeds but now I am stuck on what to do next. The slope itself is very soft and crumbly — full of rocks and bricks. As an amateur landscaper (Not really! But I'm trying my best) am I in over my head? The yard is huge and goes block to block. For right now I am only worried about the first slope and flat section. What plants do you recommend to help secure the soil? Also, what should I do to secure the steepest sections of the slope? Any help is greatly appreciated!
