favored uses for (bean) pot liquor?

just made some pinto beans on this lazy sunday afternoon in a mixture of half water and half chicken stock along w/a couple of cloves of garlic, small onion, celery and carrot. the chicken stock was one of the most flavorful i've made to begin with and the pot liquor produced is absolutely delicious. its like super stock. will definitely not be wasting it and have a few ideas but was wondering if any of you out there have a favorite use for the stuff or any unorthodox ways to utilize it that haven't yet occurred to me. thanks.
