Default Patch fix for an eroding driveway on a hill?

I have a sloped dirt lot which has a paved driveway leading down into it (the whole thing is on a hill, of sorts). Over time, the ground next to the paved section has eroded, causing the paved portion to break away piece by piece, as the ground supporting it has dissappeared over time. This has caused a curb to be formed, which not only accelerates the process, but makes it difficult for cars to cross onto or off of it, and will eventually start causing damage.

There are plans for this lot which preclude any significant expensive repairs, such as tearing the whole thing out and repaving. I just need something that can be done quickly and inexpensively - if the repairs only last a year or two, that's okay.

What is the best way I can deal with this? Pour concrete and slope it into a makeshift ramp?
