Beef and Bean Soft Tacos

1 1/2 cups reduced sodium beef broth
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 (1 lb) flank steak, trimmed
3/4 cup chunky tomato salsa + additional for serving (optional)
1/2 cup rinsed and drained canned black beans
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons canned chopped mild green Chiles, drained
12 (7 in) flour tortillas, warmed
1/4 cup FF sour cream

Whisk together the broth and chili powder in a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker.  Add the steak.  Cover and cook until the steak is fork tender, 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.

Transfer the steak to a cutting board: discard all but 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid; wipe out the slow cooker.  With two forks, finely shred the beef.  Return the beef to the slow cooker and stir in the reserved cooking liquid, 3/4 cup of the salsa, the beans, cilantro, and Chiles.  Cook on high until heated through, about 5 minutes

Top each tortilla evenly with the beef, salsa mixture, and sour cream.  Fold tortillas in half and serve with the additional salsa on the side, if using.
