My Spanish-English dictionary only has six:

  • ñandú: rhea (a type of bird)
  • ñoñería: inanity, nonsense
  • ñoño: dull, squeamish
  • ñoqui: gnocchi (a type of food)
  • ñora: a type of red pepper
  • ñu: gnu

I'd be willing to bet that more exist though.

My English-Spanish dictionary also contains other words like:


ñame: (Botany) yam , sweet potato 
ñácara:  ulcer , sore 
ñajo:  with nasal voice 
ñandutí:   nanduti (textile industry)
ñango: (adj.Mex.) ungainly, wimp, wimpish, weedy
ñaña: elder sister
ñapa: bonus 
ñapango (adj. Colomb.) half-breed , mulatto 
ñaque: junk
ñato: snub-nosed , flat-nosed , pug-nosed 
ñeque:  strong , vigorous 
ñiquiñaque: trash, worthless person or thing.
ñoco: one-handed 
ñoñez: insipidness , insipidity 
ñoqui: (Gastronomy) gnocchi dough  (Argentina) public employee
who appears  only on payday 
ñorbo: (Botany) passionflower 
ñudo: knot

P.S. There are more words that start with ñ in the RAE Spanish dictionary.
