If there was illegal entry, then no, marriage doesnt make you a legal resident. You would need to file a 130 petition along with a I-601 waiver at the U.S. embassy/consulate in Honduras, and you would be required to appear there.

If you had legal entry, then it would be possible to get legal residency through marriage to a citizen.
