TWRP isn't the ROM file. You need to go and push the files to your Kindle. I did something similar (copied the unzipped files instead of just the zip). Unfortunately I am on mobile and not at home, or I would put in the link. Read through the recovery and help threads in the development thread and there are instructions on how to get the ROM zip on there. Then you should be fine.
