Default [Q] Rooting Problems - Can't find Superuser app?

I decided to root my kindle fire hd 7" today and I went through the whole process and downloaded the New kindle drive and the rooting software. It said I had finished rooting and when I went in and checked it, it said it was rooted but I can't find the superuser app that everybody who rooted had. Why can't I find it, isn't it supposed to be just in my apps?

Use root checker app to verify that you have SU binary. If it says that you have root,just install SuperSU app. It's way better than the Superuser app.

So I downloaded a root checker and it says it's rooted, how do I get the SuperSu app? I'll try that and if it doesn't work I'll probably try your other idea and reroot it.

You can just download it from the Play Store.
