Default ClockworkMod Recovery Error?

So I installed ROM Manager and installed CWM Recovery. Created a backup and it worked fine. I then wanted to try out Nova Launcher and successfully installed it by rebooting into CWM Recovery and installing from zip file. However, when I went to uninstall Nova Launcher using the same method I ran into a problem.

Through ROM Manager I hit Reboot into Recovery, then before the Nexus reboots to recovery, a message pops up for a split second and all I could read was something along the lines of 'Unfortunately system has stopped." before the phone reboots.

Then once the phone reboots an image of a red triangle with an exclamation point inside on top of an android on its back.

I then have to remove the battery to reboot the phone.

Has anyone run into this problem? Thoughts?

Did you rename or delete the file in /system?

If you want the recovery to stick , there is a file in /system that needs renamed or deleted through an app like root explorer, recovery-from-boot.p, I renamed it to recovery-from-boot.p.bak - that file restores the stock recovery on boot once you get rid of it or rename, flash CWM again and itll stick.

This is the folder you want
"Executing Sudo Command"
