I think you can put the TWRP recovery.img (it has to be renamed to recovery.img) inside the zip as directed, put it on the SD card and let the bootloader automatically detaect and flash it. Once its completed you would have to power down and remove it from the SD card otherwise it would try to update again next time you go into the bootloader. That should load a recovery from which you can flash a ROM.
You are the freakin man!!! I edited the template from the post you suggested, added my MID/CID, and packaged it with the TWRP image. Booted right from the SD and I now have custom recovery! I wish I could buy you a beer!
